  • Festuca glauca, or the Blue Fescue, is an attractive, mounding grass with fine, steel-blue leaves. It is a very hardy plant and tolerates drought conditions well once established. They are fairly frost hardy, coping with most frosts and sub-zero temperatures. In hotter locations, some shade from the harshest sun is preferred. They can also withstand some salt spray, making them a very versatile plant for a number of garden settings and locations.

    Plant in a well drained soil. If planting in a garden that is clay based, dig in a generous amount of gypsum and organic compost to the the planting area first.

    To keep your Fescues looking their best, give them a haircut in late summer or winter and remove some of the old leaves. New growth will appear in spring and autumn.
