A Bit More

The smallest blue fescue that we carry at Boething Treeland, Festuca ‘Elijah Blue’ is a popular, petite ground cover grass. Growing to 8-12” tall and wide, this ornamental bunchgrass forms tufts of silvery-blue foliage. In late spring, modest tan to purple inflorescences appear. More heat tolerant than other blue fescues, plant in full sun with regular water and protect from afternoon sun. Cold hardy to below 0° F. Provide good drainage and low to medium water. Due to its size, plant ‘Elijah Blue’ in masses or as container accents. Use in rockeries and in dry or mediterranean gardens.
