Resembling a tall type of Festuca at 2' in height, 'Sapphire' is an improved version of Blue Oats that is stronger and more heat tolerant. It has stiff, blue-gray foliage with a nice clump habit that can be evergreen in our area. It is the color and delicacy of the foliage that make this grass useful, although panicles do appear in mid-summer. Try it with Heuchera 'Palace Purple', Hosta 'Halcyon', and Siberian Iris for a pleasing variety of forms and colors. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
