The Q&A Archives: blue fescue

Question: Hi I really like the color and texture of the little Blue Fescues.
What I need to know is... will they be OK in a Very, hot dry place?
Will they turn brown in summer there? Also, do they turn brown early in the fall or will they continue to look good into October?
Also, would they be happy in semi-shade?

I live in zone 5. Thanks much, Dorian

Answer: Sun is best and they take the heat without problem. They should hold their color until winter arrives. If the site has at least 6 hours of sun each day, they should grow well there.

Best wishes with your blue fescue!
