    Comments about High Country Gardens Festuca Siskiyou Blue:

    Beautiful blue-green color on erect spines this time of year. As of this date, seed heads, wheat-colored, are beautiful and stretching above the foliage creates a striking contrast in the rock garden. All three doing well and appear much hardier than my other (locally-obtained) Festuca. We'll see how the color holds up over summer but absolutely pleased at this time.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
