Blue fescue is an ornamental grass, commonly used to accent other plants and flowers in a garden. It requires little maintenance, which is limited to removing brown shoots.
This compact, tuft-forming grass has narrow leaves in beautiful shades of silvery blue-green. As the plants grow no taller than four feet, it makes an excellent grass for edging or for small-scale plantings.
