Grasses are now incredibly popular in UK gardens – and not just in our lawns! Ornamental grasses provide grace, structure, colour and movement in the wind, and are very versatile.
As its name suggests the blue fescue Festuca glauca Intense Blue creates delightful spiky, rounded mounds of good intense, steely silvery-blue narrow leaves. This compact, evergreen grass is an essential addition to Mediterranean garden plantings, gravel gardens, blue-themed plantings and anywhere else the strong blue colouring will help set off other plants – whether that’s in beds, borders or containers in a sunny spot. Then, in summer, the leaves complement the bluish-green flower spikes that age to straw colours and remain intact in autumn and winter.
