Blue moor grass. Mat-forming grass with interesting bi-colored leaves, 6-12” long, lying nearly flat on the ground. Upper surface of the leaves is blue-green with the underside silver-white. Panicles emerge purple-black in March maturing to amber by June. Useful as a low maintenance lawn for small yards, mass plantings, filler, or edging. Full sun along the coast, light to full shade in inland gardens. Plants in our garden have a stronger character in the shade and we have used it successfully in the understory of native oaks. Richer with regular garden water but drought tolerant at maturity. Also tolerant of occasional foot traffic. Eastern Europe. Sesleria albicans.
