Festuca Glauca

First described by the 18th century French Botanist, Dominique Villars, Festuca Glauca was native to France, Spain, Italy and Switzerland. 


A popular plant in gardening due to its hardiness, Festuca Glauca was widely used across Europe by the 21st Century. 


With the onset of a significantly wetter Europe due to climate change in the mid-late 21st Century, Festuca Glauca would naturally migrate to Alpine regions.


However, Festuca Glauca would not survive as it retreated into higher, less oxygen-rich and lower temperate areas of the Alps.
