A wonderful new selection from S.W. Edwards at East Bay Regional Parks Botanic Garden. Growing 8 to 12 inches high and 12 to 18 inches wide the steel blue foliage offers an excellent native alternative to Festuca ovina. It tolerates most soil types and handles full sun or part shade. Nice massed as a groundcover, along pathways, fronting green shrubs or in containers.
Festuca idahoensis 'Stony Creek'
