Festuca glauca
Festuca glauca

Description:
This densely tufted, perennial evergreen grass forms a tidy mound of blue-green leaves up to 12 inches high. Bears violet-flushed flower spikelets in early summer.

Notes:
Grasses, long ignored as ornamentals, are now enjoying a growing popularity, especially with the increase in dry gardening techniques. Blue Fescue is the perfect addition to any modern garden, by virtue of its tidy form and remarkable colour.

Cultivation:
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: Sunday 14 July, 2019
