Fescue, Blue –
Regarded by some as the bluest blue fescue, this plant forms compact, cascading mounds of foot-tall, intensely blue, narrow leaves that are attractive in all seasons. Blooms are generally secondary to the foliage, but this cultivar blooms more heavily than most, with spikelets in summer.
Winchester Gardens generally stocks this item.
Dianthus – The bluish-green foliage of dianthus closely matches that of fescue. Top it off with fragrant pink blooms and you’ve got a dynamite combination.
Blanket flower – Mounds of gold, orange, and maroon daisies of blanket flower team superbly with the spiky bluish mounds of blue fescue foliage.
Shrub rose – Blue fescue makes an attractive groundcover at the base of rose bushes. Its bluish-green leaves make pink or red flowers appear more intense.
