Festuca glauca

Description

Festuca Glauca

It’s not all about the flowers. A really great garden will contain colour, structure and texture. Lucky for you, Festuca Glauca brings all three.

This is a fast-growing, very hardy and long-lived ornamental grass that’s ideal for landscaping. He’s an unusual blue-toned grass that grows in a small tufted hill of fine slender leaves.

Festuca is best mass-planted and if you pop enough in your border or rockery he will become reminiscent of the sea with that blue shading and free-flowing movements. He enjoys container life and encourages your flowering annuals to even appear even more vibrant in the border.

Festuca Glauca is a perennial grass which means he dies down over the winter before coming back bigger and better when the weather warms up.

We can’t praise this ornamental grass enough. We shouldn’t have favourites, but it’s difficult not to love this one when he works so hard and needs very little in return. Just water regularly until established and give him a good feed in spring.

Quick Facts:

  • What to use me for: So many ways! I rock a container, liven up a rockery, give substance to a border, and prevent soil erosion with a steel-blue hue.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 30cms high and wide in my first growing year if you water me well.
  • Where to place me: I like full sun and partial shade.
  • How far to space me:  Give me 30cms of room.
  • Soil Conditions: Once established I’m tolerant of most soils, but not waterlogged areas.

    Beautifully grown and mature in size with developed roots and guaranteed sun hardened. These plants can be inserted straight into the ground and make an excellent garden plant.

    We carefully package your plants into a custom size box to ensure safe transport and a healthy plant delivered to your door.

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
