Blue Avena Grass, Blue Oat Grass
12-18 inches high x 20-24 inches wide
Out of stock
Also known as Blue Oat Grass, this cool season grass forms a beautiful blue-gray spraying mound of foliage that contrasts nicely with blue fescues in size while echoing them in color. The shape of this plant reminds us of fireworks spraying out from the ground. We feature this cultivar because the blades are a little wider and show off the color better than the species plant. Does well in clay soils. Height: 12-18 inches.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:
These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.
About sizes of our plants:
Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
