What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Blue Oat Grass
Planting notes. With a little maintenance, well-draining soil and deep, infrequent waterings, you should be able to grow blue oat grass with ease. It produces its best color when it's planted in full sun. In too much shade, the grass clump may flop over. Blue oat grass is considered evergreen, but in more extreme climates it may be considered semievergreen. Every spring and fall, pull out dead growth with your hands or comb it out with a metal rake. In harsher climates a late-winter or spring trim can help keep your blue oat grass looking its best.Do you use blue oat grass in your landscape? We'd love to see your photo in the Comments below.

For front garden at west of house. In spring pull out dead growth or fall. You can also trim it in late winter or spring. Good centre for planting flowers around
