Festuca amethystina ‘Superba’

Blue sheep’s fescue or Tufted fescue. Cool season, evergreen grass with fine-textured, dark bluish-green foliage growing to 12” tall with flower spikes rising 12-18” above foliage. This cultivar possesses a gently weeping habit and springtime flowers colored pink-purple that turn gold as they mature toward summer. In our opinion ‘Superba’ is one of the most reliable of the Festucas, useful as a groundcover, accent plant, or container subject. Requires cool, moist, well-drained soil in full sun, though it is drought tolerant in coastal climates or areas with cool summers. Cut back to roughly 4” each spring to stimulate fresh new growth. Hardy to below 0F. Cosmopolitan.
