Blue Fescue seeds (Festuca glauca) – 50 Seed Count
You are purchasing a package of Blue Fescue seeds (Festuca glauca). These are fresh seeds that have been tested.
Blue fescue plants are evergreen but they do lose some of the older blades and grow new fresh deep blue leaves in spring. The older leaves adhere to the plant and spoil the bright coloration. However, you can simply comb them out with your fingers.
The grass forms low tight mounds and produces tall flower tipped stems in May to June. A key fact about blue fescue would be its zonal tolerance. It is suitable for USDA zones 4 to 9 but prefers areas without blistering hot summers. Extreme heat causes the plant to die back.
