Description :

---> Sun. Dry, poor, well-drained soil. Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue' is made for you. <---

Native to the South of France Festuca glauca has numerous cultivars. Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue' is similar to Festuca 'Boulder Blue' but has a more compact clump, 15 cm in height and deep silvery blue foliage.

These fescues all appreciate a sunny, dry and warm situation in ordinary, well-drained soil, which can be poor and dry. They need regular maintenance to keep the plant in an impeccable state. Cut the dried inflorescences.

Plant in rockery to provide a great setting for little sedums, such as: Sedum 'Purpurescens', Sedum acre 'Elegans', Sedum 'Ruby Glow', Sedum cauticola 'Lidakense'. In a contemporary garden we like to plant Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue' in a bed of white gravel. Very effective!
