Blue Oat Grass

Helictotrichon

Helictotrichon sempervirens ‘Sapphire Fountain’ full sun

A finely textured, semievergreen selection from Germany—the best of the midsized, blue-leafed grasses—‘Sapphire Fountain’ is as distinctive for its form as for its color. Bright steel blue blades leap into arching sprays of delicate, wheat-colored inflorescences hovering 2 ft. above the clump. Prospering in low humidity and well drained soil, this cool season grass gives an artful year-round show en masse or as a specimen.

Blooms May–June.

Size: 3-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
