Product information "Festuca Cinerea Hybrid 'Uchte'"

Festuca cinerea 'Uchte' is a compact, small member of the genus of grasses. With its striking blue-green stalks and the pretty, yellowish, panicle-like flowers that appear in June/July, 'Uchte' is an interesting, colourful variety for every rock garden or heath bed.

The small, very compact clumps of Festuca cinerea 'Uchte' reach a size of about 30 cm and retain their blue colouration even in winter.
Because of the low nutrient requirements the best location is in light, well-drained soils, in gravel beds, rock gardens or in pots. Pruning in the spring promotes the compact habit.

Blue fescue can be planted with partners such as spurge, stonecrop and related grasses.
