There are only slight differences. Sapphire produces graceful fountains of bright steel-blue blades form neat ornamental clumps that combine well with other grasses. Reliable and attractive accent or specimen, perfect for rock gardens. Improved rust resistance. Evergreen perennial. Moderate grower to 2 to 3 feet tall and wide.

The standard blue oat grass produces graceful fountains of colorful bright blue-gray blades form neat ornamental clumps that combine well with other grasses. Reliable and attractive accent, specimen, perfect for rock gardens. Evergreen perennial. Full sun. Moderate grower to 2 to 3 feet tall and wide.

Hope this information is helpful.
