A cool-season, clumping, evergreen grass with narrow, glaucous leaves of soft silver-blue. Plants form tidy mounds and send up silverish-blue flower stalks in spring that mature to a straw color. Use as a ground cover or edging. One of the most durable of the Blue Fescues. Drought tolerant once established, but may turn brown in the hottest part of the summer.
