Lubera stops plant deliveries to the UK
Due to Brexit, we are not able to deliver to the UK. We are working on a solution on how we can continue to bring a wide range of Lubera plants to the UK and directly to our customers' homes in the future. However, such a solution will not be available before 2022 or 2023.

Product information "Festuca amethystina"

Very elegant overhanging fescue variety that is has a colourful play of the blades that range from blue-green in summer to purple-brown tones later in autumn. Small, violet-purple flower spikes appear in June-July that “float” over the other blades.
This is a very undemanding plant for locations in full sun, in which the bluish tint develops the best. Moderate to fresh soil without waterlogging is optimal for Festuca amethystina.
Tufted fescue should be divided every two years, which prevents it from getting too old in the middle. Pruning in spring is also recommended in order to obtain a bushy habit.
Good partners for the tufted fescue include different grasses, Calluna vulgaris and smaller Juniperus varieties.
Heath gardens, rockeries and troughs are a few of the many uses for Festuca amethystina.
