(Blue Fescue Grass) If you liked ‘Elijah Blue’ you are going to love the improved Fescue ‘Blue Whiskers’. Perfect for borders and walkways, Festuca ‘Blue Whiskers’ adds texture and interest in a compact size. Standing 10-12 inches tall and up to 28 inches wide, ‘Blue Whiskers’ has proven to be taller and more vigorous than its predecessor ‘Elijah Blue’. The bright blue foliage is finely textured and has a silvery sheen. ‘Blue Whiskers’ forms a sprawling mounding habit. Early summer the yellow/green flowers emerge nestled just above the foliage, as they age they turn tan. Planted in full sun to part shade locations, ‘Blue Whiskers’ is hardy in zones 4-8 and do well in dry soil locations. This evergreen, deer resistant perennial grass is easy to grow and drought tolerant.
