Blue Fescue, also known as blue mountain grass, is a dome-shaped flowering ornamental grass that is known for its blue-gray foliage. Finely textured in individual clumps, Blue Fescue is a drought tolerant shrub, though it prefers regularly watering, that blooms in late-spring and early-summer with pale yellow flowers. Because they are often understated, Blue Fescue plantings are easy to care for and pair well with larger and more dramatic plants. Blue Fescue shrubs reach heights of 8”-12” | 20-30.5 cm and spread between 6”-9” | 15-23 cm.
