Festuca glauca, also known as Blue Fescue, is a low-growing ornamental grass that is popular in landscaping for its beautiful blue-grey foliage. This grass is drought-tolerant and low-maintenance, making it an excellent choice for areas with minimal water access. Blue fescue is often planted in mass or used as a border plant in rock gardens or mixed borders. It also makes an excellent container plant, especially in combination with other drought-tolerant plants. Blue fescue prefers full sun and well-drained soil, and its tidy, clumping habit makes it a great addition to any landscape.
