Blue Oak Grass in Berkeley Hills Garden
 
Helictotrichon sempervirens - Blue Oat Grass
This tall blue-gray evergreen clumping grass from Europe is one of our most popular grasses. Its foliage radiates out from the center to form a bristling round dome of foliage to 2 feet tall. Flower spikes are erect and high above the foliage in summer. Use as an accent plant or in mass plantings. Moderately drought tolerant but looks better with occasional watering. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well drained soil. Use a stiff rake annually to remove old foliage.
