Care and planting

Blue fescue prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant once established, but it will benefit from regular watering during the first year after planting. Blue fescue should be fertilized in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. It should also be pruned in the spring to remove any dead or damaged foliage.

Propagation

Blue fescue can be propagated by division or by seed. To propagate by division, simply dig up the plant and divide it in half. Replant the divisions in a well-drained location. To propagate by seed, sow the seeds in the spring. The seeds will germinate in 7-10 days. Once the seedlings have emerged, thin them out so that they are spaced 12 inches apart.

Pests and diseases

Blue fescue is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. However, it can be susceptible to tar spot, a fungal disease that can cause black spots on the leaves. To prevent tar spot, space the plants well and avoid overwatering.

Uses in the landscape

Blue fescue is a versatile plant that can be used in a variety of landscape settings. It is often planted in mass plantings to create a dramatic effect, but it can also be used as a specimen plant or in borders and beds. Blue fescue is also a good choice for planting on slopes or in other areas where erosion control is needed.

Here are some ideas for using blue fescue in your landscape:

  • Plant blue fescue in a mass planting to create a silvery-blue carpet.
  • Use blue fescue as a border plant to add texture and interest.
  • Plant blue fescue in a rock garden to create a natural, alpine look.
  • Plant blue fescue in a container to add height and interest to a patio or deck.

Conclusion

Blue fescue is a beautiful and versatile ornamental grass that is easy to care for. It is a great choice for gardeners of all levels of experience.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
