Festuca glauca is a clump-forming ornamental grass noted for its glaucous, finely-textured, blue-gray foliage.

Festuca glauca is a short-lived clump grass that tends to die out in the center after a couple years. When this happens, the clumps should be dug up and divided, and the divisions replanted.
