We have a rock parking area that we would like to turn into rock garden with blue/complimentary plants (full-sun with early morn and late afternoon shade) we can't ammend the rocks will burried pots(and what kind of medium) work for elijah?

No answer came in months, and I am surprised. Sedum blue spruce is a good choice for a sunny, dry spot. I grew my own grass plants from a seed packet of the species that I found for sale. I chose and saved the bluest clumps.
Lazy S's Nursery, on the Virginia side of the Blue Ridge offered Eragrostis elliotii 'Glauca', which has become huge clumps, for me. They do not list it, but may have some.It turns straw colored each Winter but is a beautiful blue gray grass. Much taller and wider than Elijah. Blue Star Juniper is perfect for your spot.
