Trim each clump of blue fescue down to 1/3 of its original size every spring to maintain its shape and encourage it to produce new blades. Do this at the beginning of the growing season when the plant produces new growth. Spring clean" your blue fescue by trimming away any dead or browning blades and raking out any debris in the interior of the clump. Prune blue fescue's flowers as soon as they appear. This redirects your blue fescue's energy into filling itself out. Hope this was helpful. If you have further questions, feel free to contact us again!
