Elijah Blue Fescue Ornamental Grass
Product: Elijah Blue Fescue Ornamental Grass
Retailer: Evergreen Nursery
Elijah Blue is one of the best, and most colorful of all Blue Fescue varieties. Performs best in cooler weather & climates – will sometimes struggle somewhat in areas of high heat & humidity. Forms nice, neat, tight clumps of bright silvery blue grass, and remains evergreen in most all areas. During the summer months, each clump will put forth numerous tan colored seed heads that stick up above the rest of the clump.
Elijah Blue Fescue grass makes a great choice for use in rock gardens, or as borders along walkways, landscape edging, and as nice colorful foreground accents in front of taller plantings.
