Go Back Beyond Blue Fescue

Festuca glauca 'Beyond Blue'

Plant Type: Grasses

Beyond Blue forms a dense mound of intense powdery blue foliage that remains vibrant all season without browning out. Finely textured. Clump forming.

In a Genus already packed with orbs of fine blue foliage, 'Beyond Blue' takes the look to another level with some of the finest foliage and some of the most electrifying color of any grass! The fine-textured foliage is a rich powder blue that stays lovely all season and never "browns out".

Part of the Southern Living Plant Collection, this gorgeous ornamental is well-suited for the heat of the summer, holding its lovely cool blue right through the season. 'Beyond Blue' thrives up to Zone 4.

Fescue is known for its wonderfully tidy habit and very low-maintenance. Once established it will flourish despite drought, heat, and poor soil. Most often, it is actually better to plant 'Beyond Blue' in poor soil! Pest and disease-resistant, it is truly carefree and long-lived! Just give it good drainage and sunshine, and your work is done! Zones 4 to 8.
