Festuca glauca Intense Blue

Blue Fescue Intense Blue

An exceptionally blue grass for year-round interest, Festuca glauca Intense Blue is an evergreen, perennial grass with a fairly upright, arching, clump-forming habit. The narrow, spiky leaves are intensely, steely blue, particularly good with pink and purple flowers, giving a mobile effect to any planting. In June and July, little bluish-green spikelets (flower-heads) appear, fading to straw-coloured. This grass is best in full sun, and is very drought-tolerant, particularly good in gravel and Mediterranean plantings. It’s also very good in containers – water well until established. Comb through the foliage in late winter to remove any dead foliage. Blue fescue Intense Blue holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
