This handsome and somewhat different ground cover grows in grassy tuft-like clumps 6-10 high. The spectacular non-fading blue foliage and unique growing habits make this ideal for borders flower and rock gardens and small areas where you want to draw special attention. Blue Festuca is a hardy rapidly multiplying year round ground cover. It does well in full sun and poor fairly dry soils. It is quite suitable for seashore planting meaning that it can take exposure to windblown sand and even salt spray. Plant it in full sun for the best color. Drought tolerant.
