A recent hybrid introduction (perhaps idahoensis x ovina glauca) from the Berkeley Botanic Garden offering luminous blue foliage and a strong, durable habit. At 2’ tall with an equal spread it is larger than most ovina glauca cultivars, and with its vivid icy-blue coloring, it is a bold presence in the garden that is difficult to ignore. It has also proven to be much longer lived than other F. glauca cultivars in our garden. Flowering stems appear in spring holding amber-colored heads 18” above the foliage. Use in mass for a stunning display. Hardy to 0F. Garden origin.
Festuca ‘Siskiyou Blue’
