This is one of Roy Lancaster's favourite dwarf fescues. It is has low hummocks of vivid silvery-blue leaves and looks good all year round. The bright thread-like blue foliage is ideal for containers, especially terracotta pots, and associates well with heathers and dwarf bulbs.

Thanks For Your Time.
I have a couple of these on my roof garden which I planted in big pots at the height of TV gardening in the late 90s. I'd say it's more appropriate for a modern garden, and looks good in a less botanical context - metals, gravel and decking for example.
Have to say it's very forgiving of the less accomplished gardener (me). I generally thin it down a bit otherwise the internal bits of the clump of grass don't stay very fresh and blue.
