Plant Information

24-36” tall x 18-24” wide. ‘Sapphire’ Blue Oat Grass is a standout cool-season ornamental grass. Plants perform best in full sun, but tolerate light shade. Bluest color develops in dry soils. Plants are adaptable to a variety of soil types as long as they are well drained. Plant as a specimen in rock gardens or as an accent in mixed beds and borders to add color and texture. Large masses can be used as a tall groundcover. ‘Sapphire’ Blue Oat Grass is deer resistant and salt tolerant. A good choice for waterwise, firewise, and coastal landscapes. Plants are sensitive to heat and humidity, though ‘Sapphire’ performs better than the most varieties. An easy care selection, blue oat grass can be cut back hard in spring as needed. Combines well with other grasses.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
