$1 Festuca at clearance plant sale

Tagging Festuca idahoensis.

Kend Linderholm, UC Davis Arboretum volunteer, works to tag all the recently acquired Festuca grasses in time for the upcoming clearance plant sale.

JUST IN! We were lucky enough to be provided with hundreds of pots (over 300) of Festuca idahoensis (Idaho fescue) that were no longer needed for a nearby campus landscape project. (To be fair, Taylor Lewis, our nursery manager, is only 90% sure on exact type of grass this is because we didn’t propagate it ourselves!)

According to Wikipedia,  this grass is native to western North America, where it is widespread and common. It can be found in many ecosystems, from shady forests to open plains grasslands. It is a densely clumping long-lived perennial bunch grass with stems from about 30 to 80 centimeters in height.

Anyway, because we have so much of it, and because we aren’t 100% sure of the species, you can take them home for $1 each, and that’s before any clearance or membership discounts are applied!
