Festuca 'Boulder Blue'
Blue Fescue Grass
zones 4-8
 
Description:  This hybrid is similar to F. 'Elijah Blue', but is distinguished by a slightly shorter height, tighter habit, and more upright flower stalks. Soft powdery blue, spiky foliage that keeps its color all year round forms small, rounded clumps. In early summer, wheat-like seed heads are produced on tall, spikey stalks in great numbers. Prefering dryer conditions, this is the perfect grass for rock gardens, in stone troughs or pots, for costal climates, or even for use as edging.
Bloom Color: Creamy white to brown
Bloom Time: Summer
Foliage Color: Blue/Silvery
Height: 6-8"
Spread: 8-12"
