Idaho fescue, blue bunchgrass

ca$á3.95   
Seed count: 20-25   
Festuca idahoensis
Festuca idahoensis
Native Region: western North America
Zone Range: 5-9
Preferred Climate: temperate
Harvest Date: Sunday 23 October, 2022
Seed count: 20-25

Description:
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.

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 23 October, 2022
