Description :

A little plant hedgehog for a rock garden

Native to Spain Festuca gautieri (synonym: Festuca scoparia) is a dense, mat-forming, rhizomatous perennial.

Festuca gautieri 'Pic Carlit' is a miniature variety scarcely 8 cm in height. Over the years its dense and spiky foliage is a valuable addition to a hardscape area, as it billows out over a dry rockery, paving, gravel gardens, walls or green roofs.

Try mass planting Festuca gautieri 'Pic Carlit' (in odd numbers) and large pebbles to create a dynamic contrast.

Grow in the sun in poor, gravelly, slightly acidic to chalky soil.

Maintenance: prune the inflorescences before they ripen.
