'Elijah Blue' Fescue Grass is one of the most popular, no fuss ornamental grasses. Low growing in tight mounds with fine silvery blue-green foliage, plant 'Elijah Blue' in borders, rock gardens, or as groundcover to create year-round visual interest in the garden. In late spring and early summer, blonde seed heads appear on tall stems. Compact forms are great for small gardens and containers, and wont overtake its companions in the garden. (Festuca glauca)

6-12" tall x 6-12" wide. Each 'Elijah Blue' Fescue Grass plant forms a handsome blue-green clump with slender foliage, adding interest to the landscape. 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. Plant in dry to average, well-draining soil in full sun – it can tolerate part sun, but the foliage color will be diminished. Cut back in late winter/early spring to encourage new growth. Divide or re-plant every 2 or 3 years for the most aesthetically pleasing results. Since these compact plants do not spread, you can plant them close together  for a full, dense look.
