Fescue 01

Fescue may not be my favorite plant, but this is by far my favorite of all the plant photographs I’ve taken. It is not flashy or brightly colored to catch the eye, but it’s solid and true and speaks to me. Okay, enough of that.

Pale grey or bluish-green in appearance, blue fescue is a clump-forming ornamental grass with finely textured foliage. Light green flowers with a purple tinge appear on stems rising above the foliage in late spring to early summer. Flowers give way to puffy wheat-like seed-heads, which are shown here.
