Festuca Amethystina Grasses

Festuca Amethystina (Tufted Fescue)

The delightful Festuca Amethystina are compact, densely tufted, hardy evergreen grasses.  These super little plants have finely textured blue green foliage, topped in early Summer with attractive ornamental long green stems carrying delicate feathered purplish pink flowers that turn buff as the seeds ripen.

Festuca Amethystina (Tufted Fescue) grasses are best planted in a sunny location in the garden.  Try planting in a gravel or Mediterranean style rockery, a centrepiece in a large courtyard garden, or planted in swathes along a sunny border adding gentle elegance to your planting schemes. Plant with other ornamental grasses, or with Dogwood to enjoy the coloured stems as a backdrop.
