Here's a quick easy one.

Some grew to remember me,
On the ground, or up a tree,
I play well with R&B,
In large amounts, a sight to see.

Throughout a valley, over hill,
A thing for which some men would kill,
I may be new, or if you're ill,
Round something yours that rhymes with chill.

What am I?

Primary Colours; red, green and blue

On the ground or up a tree

Grass and Leaves

RGB colours; Red, Green and Blue

In large amounts, a sight to see

Large open fields

Green is used to describe something new. Sick people are described as going a shade of green

Thanks @Silenus for filling in the blanks

    $\begingroup$ I read "for which some men would kill" as envy, which I'm now surprised didn't make an appearance. This was a good one though! $\endgroup$ – Rubio Feb 10 '17 at 14:37
