Blue Fescue (Festuca Glauca)

Originally from Europe, Blue Fescue has become a popular ornamental grass in Northern California. They can withstand a variety of weather conditions, and sometimes decide to show of their fancy flower.

Where They Do Well:

As long as there’s good drainage, they’ll be happy in both warm and cold conditions, include windy atmospheres.


They’ll require moderate to regular watering. They may need possible replacement after several years, as with most ornamental grasses.
