Description

Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue' is a cool-season, clumping, evergreen grass with narrow, glaucous leaves of soft silver-blue. Plants form tidy mounds and send up silvery-blue flower stalks in spring that mature to a straw color. Use as a ground cover or edging. One of the most durable of the Blue Fescues but may turn brown in the hottest part of the summer. Drought tolerant once established. Avoid over watering during the growing season.

Plant care

Plant in average to lean, well-draining soil. Water regularly during the first year to aid the plant in establishing a strong root system, frequency should be cut back once established. In the Spring, remove yellowing and dying foliage before the new blades emerge.
