Festuca glauca ‘Beyond Blue’

Blue Fescue

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 8.170.140

There are several selections of Blue Fescue, all of them valued for their clumping habit, and display of colourful, grassy foliage. This selection forms a dense tuft of bluer-than-blue leaves that remain blue all season. Spikes of tan flowers in early summer. Excellent for mass planting, edging, or in the rock garden. Clumps are easily divided in early spring, and this should be done every 2 to 3 years. Evergreen in mild areas, in colder winter regions the leaves should be trimmed back in late winter right to the base. Flower spikes may also be removed in summer, if desired. USPP#23307: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
