In garden containers, use this as a filler. Fillers tend to be rounded or mounded to give the combination a fuller look. Fillers are usually placed in front of, or around, the Thriller. Consider growing these in garden planters or containers for added flexibility on locations limited on space or sunlight. Stays short and perfect as a border plant, which are perfect placed along the edge of a garden bed or path. The Blue Whiskers Blue Fescue typically grows 10-12 inches tall, and 24-28 inches wide.

    great in planters

    Posted by D. Schindler on Mar 21st 2019

    I put these in some planters on my deck and it looks great, even in the winter! Easy to care for and adds great color to an otherwise boring space. I typically like flowering plants, but these are easy and look great year round, so it was an easy decision.
