Description
The Fescue grasses are famous for being clump-forming, and thus not chocking out other less tough plants near them. In other words, this is one grass that doesn't overrun everything around it. Instead each plant forms a handsome clump adding interest to the landscape.

          Comments about American Meadows Fescue Elijah Blue - Plant:

          These are beautiful for the tint of blue they have- I am using them along a hill on the side of our driveway in mass to fill the space with something low so as not to block the driving view. They seem to be very tolerant as the midwest has had little to no rain this season and I do occasional watering. I do wish the plant size was larger as these seem to be slow growing based on what they look like now to what the photos and description have them at full size.
