Description

Loved for its remarkable blue-green color and densely clumping form, Roemer’s fescue is a widespread and common native bunchgrass in southwest Oregon and northwest California. Found from shady forests to open grassland, Roemer’s fescue inhabits a wide variety of habitat types. It is an important native grass species for restoration of native grasslands, upland prairie, and oak woodland. Growing 1′-2′ tall, Roemer’s fescue is drought tolerant, preferring medium to fine textured soil. Great for wildland plantings, rock gardens, ornamental native plant gardens, or mixed into a wildflower meadow. Roemer’s fescue seeds are an important food source for wildlife, and the foliage is used as a larval host plant by some butterfly species.
