Elijah Blue Fescue is an outstanding fine-textured semi-evergreen ornamental grass that grows in porcupine-like tufts.  The softly arching foliage is an icy blue and is topped with non-showy airy panicles with green flowers in spring and summer.  Best foliage in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought and poor soil tolerant.
