Re:blue lyme grass

Marge, I got some blue lyme grass from Park Seed 2 years ago, was NOT
impressed until this year, it finally is starting to take off. I just sort
of laid there before. I love the color but was toying with pulling it out
because of its lack of "umph"

Now I'm glad I won't have to! Was yours a slow starter?
