A popular ornamental grass, Blue Oat Grass (Helictotrichon sempervirens) is taller than Blue Fescue, with the same attractive coloring. A densely packed, blue spray leaves arch upward, then down at the tips. The blue-gray foliage of this grass contrasts nicely with the warmer tones of summer flowers and fall foliage, offering a chance to cool off from reds and browns. This grass is deer resistant, and it stays evergreen in some mild climates. Plus, Blue Oat Grass doesn't spread through seedlings, so it's non-invasive. Add texture and graceful softness to the garden with Blue Oat Grass. Helictorichon sempervirens
