Festuca-Blue Fescue

Propagating Festuca or Blue Fescue can be done at anytime of the year by dividing the plant, spring being preferable since its roots need to be watered until established and transplants should be replanted at ground level, not above nor below, however if you allow the seed heads to mature there will be plenty of babies growing in the garden so this is one plant that should be deadheaded. It is evergreen and deer resistant. Its flowers are either violet or blue green and the plants height can be from 8"-12' and blooms in June through July however it prefers a cooler climate since its blue shows true when planted in the sun and will do better in a sandy versus a clay soil.
