Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Average garden soil -- is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution, and will even thrive in inner city environments.
Light: Full - Part Sun -- To obtain the best foliage color plant in full sun.
Water: It prefers to grow in average to dry locations, and dislikes excessive moisture.
Spacing: 18 inches
Fertilizing: Fertilize ornamental grasses in spring with a balanced fertilizer. We don't recommend, however, fertilizing them their first spring to allow the roots enough time to settle in before having to support their very lush top growth.
Winterizing: No specific care needed. No need to cut back for winter.
Maintenance & Pruning: "Rake out" with rake or fingers all spent foliage in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. Division should be done in spring every few years to keep Festuca at its best.
