Festuca Glauca Intense Blue is a very attractive evergreen grassy shrub that is mainly grown for its bluish steel wire-like foliage. This compact mound-forming shrub is a striking variety that is tolerant of urban pollution and strong coastal winds. It surprises everyone with bluish-green flower spikes that rise from the base of the plant. A perfect plant that is ideal for borders in any low maintenance garden.

Also known as the Ice Blue or Casblue, this Festuca features bold and slender hair-like tufts of leaves that look like steel wires. In summer, Intense Blue will bloom with beautiful bluish-green spikes of flowers adorned with silver coloured plumes. The compact and mounding habit of this undemanding grass will add texture and structure to your garden.

Festuca Intense Blue displays its best colour when planted in sunny spots in a garden. It will thrive in full sun or partial shade, planted in a dry soil that is well-drained. Water the young plants moderately in the first year. When planting the grass in a pot, add a good quality compost and ensure easy water draining.

Even though this plant is evergreen, there will be some leaves that will die out in winter. Simply comb through the hairy grass with your fingers to remove any dead leaves. Intense Blue is an easy to grow plant, even for a beginner gardener as it requires low maintenance. Once established, the plant develops tolerance against mild droughts.

Intense Blue can be combined excellently with other garden shrubs. Use it in a gravel garden or in a Mediterranean-style mass planting. Group it together along a border or use as a single specimen in containers on a sunny patio.
