A densely tufted perennial, clumping, cool-season grass with brighter blue and slightly wider leaves than the species. Blue Oat Grass resembles Blue Fescue, only larger and more graceful. In late spring, tall, stiff upright stems bear airy panicles of straw-colored spikelets. Although flowering is dependent upon climatic conditions, the foliage alone makes this a favorite among gardeners. Semi-evergreen in colder climates. Use singularly or in mass in rock gardens, borders, perennial or poolside gardens.
