Beyond Blue Fescue
Festuca glauca 'Casca11' PP #23,307
|Description||A dense mound of intense, colorfast, powder blue foliage that provides waterwise, heat and humidity tolerant texture. Buff-colored plumes create eye-catching contrast in late summer. Great to accent a rock garden, or for use en masse to edge a border or create a groundcover. Semi-evergreen.|
|Watering||Once established, water occasionally; more in extreme heat or containers.|
|Mature Size||Quickly reaches 8 to 12 in. tall, 12 to 18 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container, Ground Cover, Accent, Edging|
|Design Ideas||Blue Fescue is the best small ornamental grass. Its silver-blue coloring and fine texture is appreciated in both Asian gardens and the drought-resistant landscape. Most often planted near rock gardens, around landscape boulders and in dry streambeds. Does equally well as a formal edging plant or in a mass for groundcover effect.|
|Companion Plants||Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Bluebeard (Caryopteris); Salvia (Salvia); Yucca (Yucca); Sedum (Sedum); Echeveria (Echeveria); Daylily (Hemerocallis)|
|Care||Thrives in average to very lean, loose, well-drained soils; does not tolerate soggy, poorly-drained soil. Water regularly during first growing season to establish root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates moderate drought. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge.|
