Idaho Fescue is a small tidy bunchgrass. It is native from around San Francisco to Canada. Idaho Fescue is good for a meadow grass in cool summer areas, but also grows in hot summer areas with higher rainfall. Idaho Fescue likes full sun, or part sun. After it flowers, you can mow (mow high so that you do not cut off the tuft of leaves) down the flowering stalks and what remains is the tuft of bluish-green leaves. Idaho Fescue is a valuable asset to the meadow garden, grows best in the northern half of the state, and in hot summer areas needs sprinkling during the dry season, weekly or semimonthly. Mix with Sisyrinchium bellum, Dudleya caespitosa, Sedum spathulifolium, Achillea millefolium californica.
