Festuca roemeri (Roemer's Fescue) Seed Packet SF


( / )

Please select all options.

Historically the dominant native bunchgrass in the upland prairies west of the Cascades. The fine textured, bluish-green foliage and upright delicate seed heads lend a vertical element of motion, contrast, and airiness to your garden arrangement. Lovely. Depending on the specimen, the seed heads and stems may take on a reddish or purplish hue. Being a bunchgrass, it spreads slowly by an enlarging crown – not by aggressive stolons. Non-invasive – it plays nice with others.
