A handsome selection from the Berkeley Botanic Garden. Features dense bunches of lovely chalky blue leaf blades 10 - 12 inches tall with grass flowers rising up to 12 inches above the foliage. Sun or light shade in cooler climates. Protect from the hot afternoon sun in warmer areas. Good with moderate to occasional irrigation. Once thought to be native but now recognized as a hybrid of unknown origin. Deer resistant.
