Dwarf Heavenly Bamboo and Blue Fescue

Two plants looking especially pretty in this cold December weather: Nandina domestica 'Fire Power' and Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue'. I don't currently have them planted next to each other but might have to change that. I think I'll like red and blue together all winter and during the warmer seasons the lime green color of the Nandina should be nice beside the blue too! 


  1. Red/scarlet and that grey-blue color are some of my favorite color combinations to use in landscaping! I want a blue-leaf rose with scarlet flowers....that would be so aesthetically pleasing.

  2. That WOULD be cool! I used to have a blue-green leaf rose hybrid that had magenta flowers. It was from rugosa X glauca. It was only a once-bloomer but still might have been a good stepping stone to get to that blue-leaf, scarlet-flowered vision. I'll have to see if I can find my old pictures of it.
