Festuca roemeri, 1 gal.
Roemer’s fescue is a cool season bunchgrass primarily found west of the Cascades in rangeland prairies, upland prairies, and oak savannahs. This densely tufted perennial grass is often used in habitat restoration within its natural range, providing excellent erosion control through its deep root system and serving as an important nutrition source for wildlife, including the larvae of certain butterflies. Roemer’s fescue sports threadlike leaves of bluish green and panicles that grow up to 25 cm. This fescue can work as a wonderful lawn substitute in its natural range of occurrence; it also provides year round interest in rock gardens and wildflower meadows.
