California Fescue grows in greenish gray tufts very much like a cross between Deer Grass and needle Grass. If you are into grasses it makes a good planting. Deer grass in the drainage, California Fescue above it and Purple Needle grass above that. Although it commonly grows on serpentine soils in San Luis Obispo County, grows from northwestern California south to the southern California mountains, it is very versatile, and will grow on lighter soils, with some additional moisture.

Festuca californica tolerates serpentine.

Festuca californica's foliage color is green-gray.
