Details
15" tall (in flower) x 12" wide (division propagated). The intense blue coloration of 'Boulder Blue' foliage is a delight. Although not a well-known variety, this selection, made by Ted Kuettel of Golden, CO over 30 years ago, has proven itself in the harsh and erratic climate of Colorado's front range. A larger grower than 'Sea Urchin', 'Boulder Blue' is a showy, heavy bloomer with a nice upright habit. Grows easily in any moderately fertile garden soil.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Festuca glauca Boulder Blue:

    This is a lovely little grass - unique in it's color, hardy - not prone to pests. Does quite well in low water environments. This plant takes a couple-three years to get to full size. It has the same lovely blue tones you see in the picture.
