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.
Native to Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia and the Czech Republic, this delightful semievergreen grass develops luminous woolly-looking white blooms and a resilient lime-loving bent. Stiff linear, smooth green blades with prominent veins compose an upright compact clump that supports the ample showing of plump oblong-shaped inflorescences atop short stout stalks. Unhampered by shade and occasional drought, Hungarian Bluegrass can be massed as a ground cover, planted amid the rockery or ensconced up front in a mixed border, where it prefers sunshine or dappled light plus dry to moderately-moist soil.
Size: 15.8" high x 15" – 18" wide.
