Festuca idahoensis

Idaho fescue, blue bunchgrass

Seed count: 20-25   
Festuca idahoensis
Festuca idahoensis
Native Region: western North America
Zone Range: 5-9
Preferred Climate: temperate
Harvest Date: Tuesday 11 July, 2017
Seed count: 20-25

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.

Harvest Date: Tuesday 11 July, 2017
