Features

notes

Festuca Intense Blue is a compact ornamental grass with a neat rounded shape. Mainly grown for its soft, steely blue foliage, it thrives in full sun. It also produces bluish green, tall flower spikes in summer, which fade to the colour of straw.

Insights

From the south of France, Festuca glauca Intense Blue prefers full sun and dry, well drained soil and so is an ideal plant for gravel or rock gardens, prairie planting and Mediterranean style gardens. Because it is low lying, it is ideal for lining a path or at the front of the border.

Care

Remove dead foliage in winter by hand. It tends to be short lived, but cut back in late winter to extend its life.
