Festuca glauca ‘Intense Blue’

Festuca glauca Intense Blue

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.

  1. YES!!!!!

    2017 will, for me, be the year of the grasses. My HPS order is entirely grass seeds.

    Though I do seem to have some other enticements which will compete for my sowing space (they arrived first and have stuck their labels into the propagator in anticipation). Oh, and I also have a quantity of annual flower seed from Ben over at @HiggledyGarden. I doubt anyone will notice if I shift the garden fence back a foot or two into “no man’s land” next door.
