The Beyond Blue Festuca is an exciting, brand-new variety from the Southern Living Plant Collection. This evergreen has exceptionally unique intense powder blue foliage that won’t lose its color in winter! These truly blue grasses grow in a short, tuft-like mound that reaches about a foot tall. Although worthy of attention on their own, this Festuca’s reliable coloration and small size are perfect for highlighting the plants around it. Tolerant of most soil types, the Beyond Blue Festuca is tremendously hardy and coasts right through heat, drought, and humidity. The Beyond Blue is a sun lover, so make sure to plant it in a location that will receive 5 hours of sun daily.
