This densely-clumped perennial bunchgrass has short, rolling blue leaves and bears hairy buff-coloured spikelets above the foliage in summer. Height 12-24 inches. Drought-tolerant and deer resistant. Useful for foliage contrast in an alpine or rock garden.
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed in containers in a coldframe in spring or autumn. Seed may be sown <i><b>in situ</b></i>, but there is always the problem with birds eating the seeds before they grow. Grow in poor to moderately-fertile, dry, well-drained soil in full sun. Divide and replant every 2 or 3 years to maintain foliage colour.
