For years we have been looking for good heat- and drought-tolerant blue-foliaged grasses without an invasive habit...Elymus 'Canyon Prince' is a superb candidate. Discovered near the California coast and later introduced by California's Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, this hybrid of the US native Elymus condensatus boasts wide but stiff powder blue foliage that holds up wonderfully in our heat and humidity. In 5 years expect an evergreen mound 2' tall x 3-4' wide.
