These are very fine and needle-like with a silvery blue-green colour. In summer short spikes of bluish flowers also appear above the hummocks of foliage and these gradually fade to a buff colouration. To achieve the best foliage colour, these plants need lots of sun, and a trim each year before they start in to growth to remove last years foliage which can start to look tatty with age.
Common names include blue fescue, blue mountain grass, and grey fescue. Originally described by French naturalist Dominique Villars, its scientific name glauca is derived from the Latin adjective glaucus "pale blue-grey".
