Blue Oat Grass

Ornamental Grasses

Helictotrichon Sempervirens at Johnson Brothers Greenhouses

Ornamental grasses like Blue Oat Grass (Helictotrichon sempervirens) are widely used in landscaping projects.  This clumping blue, evergreen grass forms nice, spiky mounds topped by narrow, tan flower plumes.

A “Great Plant Pick” for the Pacific Northwest, it does excellent in full sun and is deer resistant!
Expect Blue oat grass to grow in an arching type of shape to 18″ by 18″, with flowers blooming in May and lasting through August.

When planting, you will want to use a root stimulator to reduce transplant shock and stimulate early root formation and strong development.
