Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue'
Popular, compact rounded shrub that thrives in most Australian gardens. Blue Fescue is the best small ornamental grass and 'Elijah Blue' is the bluest of all the Fescues with outstanding, fine, icy blue colouration. This clumping ornamental grass holds up even through the heat of summer. Buff-colored plumes create eye-catching contrast.
Perfectly suited for edging borders or mass planting as a groundcover. Drought tolerant when established. Semi-evergreen.
Its silver-blue coloring and fine texture is appreciated in both Asian gardens and the drought-resistant landscape. Most often planted near rock gardens, around landscape boulders and in dry streambeds. Does equally well as a formal edging plant or in a mass for groundcover effect.
Once established, water occasionally; more often in extreme heat or if planted in containers.
