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.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
