Blue Fescue Seeds - festuca glauca
Blue Fescue is a clump-forming ornamental grass noted for its glaucous, finely-textured, blue-gray foliage.
The foliage forms a dome-shaped, porcupine-like tuft of erect to arching, needle-like 9-ribbed blades, radiating upward and outward to a length of 140-180 mm. Light green flowers with a purple tinge appear in terminal panicles atop stems rising above the foliage in late spring to early summer, but inflorescences are not very showy. Flowers give way to puffy wheat-like seed-heads.
Festuca seeds will usually germinate in 10-90 days, but even under good conditions, germination may be erratic. The seeds will germinate only with light. Sow the Festuca seeds on the surface of a Peaty seed sowing mix at about 68 ºF. When plants are grown from seed some variations in foliage color often occur. Germination can take longer. Be patient!
