Blue Moor Grass
This genus of reliable cool-season grasses pays homage to Leonardo Sesler, an 18th century Venetian botanist and physician who studied European flora. Sesleria’s long-lived carefree clump makes a superlative ground cover for intimate gardens or larger scale plantings.
This European native’s sturdy tuffet fashions a long-lived and versatile, noninvasive ground cover. Easily cultivated, low-growing Blue Moor Grass puts forth a dense evergreen mound of soft, two-toned leaves, which are glaucous blue on top and dark green beneath. The twisted and curvy leaves present a cool blue-green base for small spiky panicles of purplish black flowers that mature to a silvered green. With enough fortitude to handle cold weather and alkaline soils, Sesleria caerulea is unrivaled as a filler between larger grasses or for edging a pathway, and equally impressive when massed.
Size: 8" – 12" high x 8" – 12" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
