Cool new fescue

Festuca ‘Siskiyou Blue’ an attractive bunch grass that was flowering this year on June 4, 2012 in Minnesota. With 12′ foliage and 24″ flowers, this is a showy spring bloomer for a dry sunny site. Planted in 2011, with only 1 year of winter data in Minnesota, looks great so far; only one plant so far in our collection at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
