This has become one of my favorite ornamental plants, great when used as a specimen in rock gardens or nudged up against boulder in full sun placements. A couple of words of caution about this plant, it needs excellent drainage and NOT regular watering, water only as necessary to prevent total soil dryness. Blue fescue makes a very interesting clump planting in a hot, dry location. It is also good for a border or edge planting. It will take a small amount of shade, but it does prefer full sun and you will achieve a deeper blue in full sun.
