Commonly found in undisturbed and/or restored prairies, meadows and savannas. Tolerates moist to dry soils and partial shade to full sun exposure.
Roemer’s Fescue Grass is believed to be a subspecie of the more common Idaho Fescue or Blue Bunchgrass (Festuca Idahoensis), which is commonly a brighter more vivid blue and sometimes used as an ornamental. Roemer’s Fescue is a non-aggressive drought tolerant grass that can share soil with forbs/wild flowers.
