Azay Blue is an extremely attractive improved variety of blue sheep fescue (Festuca ovina) which has been developed for low maintenance turf use. It exhibits a very low growth habit, has a fine leaf texture and even under low fertility forms a dense sward. Azay Blue is a bunch-type grass which does not spread by means of stolons or rhizomes. It is an excellent choice for use as ground cover, for erosion control or in drought or acidic situations.
