The variety is very fine leaved and has a high density. Blues mixes very well with chewings fecues for ornamental use. Its notes on the French list are the best for rusts, leaf spot and Fusarium tolerance. Blues gets easily established which makes it an more than average strong sheeps fescue. Nicely green all year long, its colour becomes bluish during dry periods.
