The Ornamental Grass 'Elijah' Blue', 'Festuca glauca', also know as Blue Fescue, is a wonderful ornamental grass that should not be passed by.

With its bluish gray foliage, the plumes appear overwhelming from June to July.

'Elijah Blue' has a plant height of 12" and spread of 12-24". This grass prefers full sun, but will tolerate morning shade. For best results, comb through the plant in winter to remove dead foliage.

Combined with blue and purple flowers, such as Salvia and Veronica, it adds color and contrast to any perennial garden.

Keep well watered in hot summer months, especially when becoming established.
