Semievergreen. The best of the midsized, blue leaved grasses. Strictly clump forming, producing erect, silver-blue foliage to 2'. Sturdy inflorescences with seed heads similar to oats, appear in late spring, held more than 2' above the foliage and remain attractive through most of the summer.

A medium-size, clump-forming grass with lovely blue-gray, fine-textured foliage. Airy flowers rise 2' above the leaves in late spring. Makes a stunning accent in a sunny border. Needs good drainage, especially in winter. Cool-season grass. AGM winner. GPP award.

One of the most marvelous of the middle-sized blue grasses (R.Grounds) forming a 2-3' tussock of spiky, attractively-blue leaves overtopped by showy arching flowerheads; not stoloniferous. Sun/Med

Powdery blue-gray narrow blades are topped with buff-yellow 2' tall seed heads. An evergreen presence for the winter landscape.
