More Information

Description Boulder Blue blue fescue (Festuca glauca) is one of the bluest ornamental grasses on the market! The steel-blue, almost metallic foliage adds a refreshing contrast to typical green-hued plants. The colors never fade, even during spouts of intense heat and drought. Did we mention how durable and low maintenance it is? This hardy, perennial grass thrives in almost any garden condition! The compact habit makes it the perfect addition to any sunny spot in your garden. We particularly love it in patio containers. Details Botanical name: Festuca glauca 'Boulder Blue'
Common name: Bolder blue fescue
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun)
Height x width: 12" x 12"
Flower color: Light beige
Foliage color: Steel-blue
Season of interest: Spring through fall
Uses: Container gardening, cottage gardening, edging, ground cover, massing, ornamental  
How To Grow Soil: Happy in average soils. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner-city environments.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun) to part-sun (4-6 hours sun), but the best colors develop with more sun.
Water: It prefers average to dry locations and dislikes excessive moisture.
Spacing: 18 inches
Fertilizing: We don't recommend fertilizing them their first spring to promote root development. It can be fertilized subsequent years in early spring with balanced fertilizer but is generally unnecessary.
Winterizing: No specific care is 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.

Very Blue!

Arrived in quality packaging a year ago. They've grown beautifully in a full-sun area in North Texas.
The best part? They're actually blue! Very pretty accent plants that survive high heat, drought, and multiple freezes. They are real landscape standouts!

Boulder blue

They are vibrant blue. Very nice, but one out of three that I bought died unfortunately.

Too soon to tell

What attracted me to this plant was the color. The first order of two, were planted, but died on me. Great Gardens sent replacements. The second set were in excellent condition. In fact, they looked better than the first order. They've been planted, but haven't seen much growth. One is starting to lose that beautiful color, the other looks the same as when first received. Description says heat and drought tolerant, but there is something about Texas heat - there is a difference. I'm really hoping they will make it.
