Festuca glauca Intense Blue

Celia,,is it in a gh?  Another reason for it turning green.

Agree, it is definitely a hot sun subject for light free draining soil.  With the brighter,,lighter conditions it will soon regain its blue colour.

in a pot I would mix in some perlite too

It survived a couple of winters for me but the whole plant was disappointing.  I just thnk it has biennial in its genes, not perennial. The "ordinary" everyday foxgloves are far better.  Had several white last year that flowered for much of the early/mid summer

Cuttings for me too....easy.  The plants are usually perennial down here but best fresh every year.   Why do seeds when you can take cuttings?

Their reputation for hating their brittle roots disturbed is unfounded as far as I am concerned.  They divide and regrow very quickly so I have a few white as well as pink varieties

C3k, I would prune out all weak will amount to nothing.  prune the rest to as low as possible...if you see buds try to prune to outward facing omes to produce a nice open bush
