Cultivar Notes - 'Blue Oat Grass'
Blue Oat grass looks like a miniature water fountain, with its densely packed leaves gently spraying upward and arching back downward at the tips. This species displays spiky, blue-gray foliage that will draw your attention all season long.

In early summer, small, tan seed heads appear on tall stems held well above the foliage. In mild climates, the foliage is evergreen; it is semi-evergreen in colder zones.

Blue Oat Grass adds a small, coarse element to rock gardens, coastal gardens, or dry hillsides. It is also great in containers.

Series Notes - Cool Season Grasses
Cool season grasses are at their prime during the cooler months of fall, winter, and spring, and usually bloom before the warmer summer weather arrives. Many are evergreen. They will put on the most growth during these cooler months. Cool season grasses include: Calamagrostis acutiflora, Festuca, Helictotrichon, and Stipa.
Genus Notes - Helictotrichon
A taller version of fescue with wider leaves and gracefully arching inflorescence.
