FESTUCA 'ELIJA BLUE'
This superb relatively recent discovery makes dense tufts of glaucous blue wiry leaves producing a striking display, either as a specimen or for edging or pot culture.
Sow at any time, in a well-lit position, into a good, soil-based compost. Cover seeds thinly and keep moist at around 15 degrees C or 60 degrees F. Some New Zealand species can be very slow indeed and may need cooler temperatures before they will come up. Grass seedlings should be potted on and grown on singly, or in clumps for more rapid establishment of a large specimen.
Common name:Blue Fescue, Elijah Blue
