I excused myself for buying this Festuca glauca ‘Intense Blue’ by pretending that I would pass it on to a client. This of course never happened. What happened instead is that I suggested to Lady Mantle that there was a really nice plant available and it would look great in a pot outside her front door. So her Ladyship went shopping, bought two and planted them with violas in large pots, outside her front door. They look very nice. Then sadly this one didn’t have a home to go to, so I adopted it, and I put it in a pot outside my front door, with violas. It also looks very nice, especially in today’s thick Devon mizzle. Funny how things turn out.
