Festuca rubra - Molate strain

  • Festuca rubra - Molate strain  creeping red fescue
creeping red fescue

Discovered on Point Molate near Richmond, this selection spreads to form soft, flowing drifts of gray-green foliage 12 to 18 inches tall with graceful, open flowers rising to 3 feet.  One of the biggest forms of our native red fescue, it’s eye-catching when planted in large masses or when combined with mounding shrubs or some of the more robust native bulbs.  Very choice for a meadow or parking strip.  Prefers some afternoon shade in the hotter climates and occasional water away from the coast.  More drought tolerant than many other red fescues.  Deer resistant.

Sorry; this plant is out of stock at present.
