A Plant Select® introduction

 

Plant this muhlygrass for a show-stopping autumnal display! An aura of reddish mauve flower spikes bloom late summer into fall and will stop you in your tracks - a performance that intensifies when backlit by the rising or setting autumn sun. Striking when planted en masse, or lovely as an accent mixed into a perennial border. The clouds of flowers dry after frost and persist to provide winter interest. This warm season grass’s fine-textured, soft green foliage forms a tidy, well-behaved mound. Heat and drought tolerant, long-lived and low maintenance.

Festuca glauca Beyond Blue™ 'Casca11' Growing and Maintenance Tips

F. glauca prefers average, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerant of drought, salt, heat and humidity. Is prone to center rot if grown in soils that remain wet during the winter. Spreads via rhizomes. Cut foliage to the ground in early spring to maintain neat appearance. Division in spring or fall.
