Helictotrichon sempervirens

Helictotrichon sempervirens
Common name blue oat grass
Family poaceae
Life cycle perennial
Size 2'
Light sun
Cultural notes ordinary garden soil
From seed ours doesn't appear to set viable seed

The 'other' blue-green grass in our garden. Blue oat grass grows more strongly upright with sturdier blades than blue fesque, but is about the same size overall.

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