Introducing Festuca ovina var. glauca, also known as Blue Fescue. This drought-resistant plant thrives on shallow chalky soils and is tolerant of constant cutting, making it a popular lawn grass. Its clumps of smooth, silvery-blue leaves make for a stunning ornamental border and ground cover. Blue Fescue is also a food plant for several butterfly and moth species, including the Gatekeeper and Meadow Brown. This perennial plant is found in acidic bogs, like Portlethen Moss in Scotland, and mountain pastures across Europe and Asia. Its bristle-like panicles flower from May to June and are wind-pollinated. Blue-Grey foliage varieties are available and planting in well-drained soil under full sun will ensure successful growth. Be a part of the conservation effort by welcoming Blue Fescue into your garden today. Find more information at http://plants.usda.gov.
