Full Sun to part shade.
Mature size 8 to 10 inch height, spreads 8 to 10 inches.
Growth Rate: Moderate; semi-evergreen clumping with a rounded habit,

  1. Elijah Blue grass plugs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2017

    Everything arrived very healthy and are in the ground! It was an easy way to order these and plant them. While it is too early to tell if they will survive, I sure hope they do. This is a nice nursery to deal with and I hope to do future business with them
