Here comes the sun
Bring brightness to the landscape with Sunrise Festuca from breeder Krzysztof Słowiński of Gospodarstwo Ogrodnicze Szkółka Słowińscy who is shown above. The dark green leaves turn copper-orange at the top in late autumn and winter, while in summer, the flowers and flower stems have an attractive, bright orange-red color. What a striking contrast these orange-red hues bring to the gardenscape.
