Festuca glauca

Festuca glauca
Synonym(s) Festuca ovina var. glauca
Common name blue fesque grass
Family poaceae
Life cycle perennial
Size 18"
Light sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil

Common but useful ornamental grass - a mop of quite blue-tinted foliage, topped with tan flower/seed-stalks in summer. Works best in grouped plantings

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
