I have always loved grasses in the garden, I know they can look untidy sometimes, but like my own hair, a quick comb through and all is good again.

 

The absolute best thing about this grass is – it’s blue, and the more sun it has, the more blue it is!  OK it’s not royal or french blue, but it’s more powder blue with a slight industrial grey hint thrown in, but whoever said that grass is green had clearly led a very sheltered life!

 

Anyway, they have to have lots of hot sun, so the nice thing is this is good in pot, go for a bold pot colour to really show off the blue.

 

If you are using it in the garden, then a really striking combination use purple leaved heuchera, ophiopogon, or libertia peregrins. 

 

I wouldn’t plant it next to bigger taller plants or surround it with too much greenery as it will get swallowed up and it loses it’s pzazz factor.
