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.

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