Festuca glauca Blue Fescue – Pack of FIVE on category Ornamental Grasses
A mystical blue grass with very fine foliage Looks excellent early in the season and will flower later Plants a neat and rounded in shape Brilliant in a container with other grasses or in the border This compact Festuca glauca or Blue Fescue as it is also known is one of the finest ornamental grasses available with blue leaves. These are very fine and needle-like with a silvery blue-green colour. In summer short spikes of bluish flowers also appear above the hummocks of foliage and these gradually fade to a buff colouration. Neat and rounded in shape it looks great in an urban city modernist garden design combined with materials such as galvanised zinc planters and specimens of bamboo or ghostly white birch trees as a backdrop. It also lends itself well to a traditional cottage scheme or a gravel garden. Try combined with the spires of blue and purple-flowering perennials such as Verbena bonariensis or with even Mediterranean-style plants. To achieve the best foliage colour these plants need lots of sun and a trim each year before they start in to growth to remove last years foliage which can start to look tatty with age. This is a very simple and easy procedure. Why not try combined with some of our other great ornamental grasses? A planter of these surrounding a Red Cordyline can also look extremely effective. These are just a few of our ideas but you’re sure to think of many others! Pack of FIVE plants each supplied in approx. 10.5cm/1 litre containers.
