This excellent selection has exceptionally blue foliage. It forms a fine mound of foliage, with golden grass flowers in July and August. It prefers a moist, well drained site in full sun, but has good drought resistance once well established and is happy by the coast. Festuca glauca can be found from the Mediterranean across to the Caspian Sea. Cut back in Spring to appreciate the new growth.
