Buy Helictotrichon sempervirens blue oat grass: Looks great with mediterranean-style plants.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, poor to moderately fertile, preferably alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

  • Garden care: Remove dead foliage and flowering stems in late winter or early spring.
