Blue-eyed Grass
Blue-eyed Grass Sisyrinchium angustifolium ‘Lucerne’ Deep blue-violet 6-petaled star-shaped flowers with golden-yellow eyes rise above fine tufts of grassy semi-evergreen iris-like foliage.

Sisyrinchium is not a grass, but a member of the iris family, with tiny clump-forming rhizomatous roots. The blossoms transform into dangling three-celled spherical seed-pods that release tiny black seeds. Over time, through both methods of reproduction, thick stands will develop.

Divide every 2–3 years to encourage good looks and vigor. Fabulous at the front of the border, in rock gardens or planted along the tree line, in damp open woods, slopes and along stream banks.

Tolerates light shade but performs best when planted in full sun, in rich moist, yet well-drained, soil. 8-10" tall. Z4. Nursery propagated plug stock.

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable, not soft or brittle. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be potted up soon, wet the roots. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If you cannot pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.
Pot up the rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6" pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers.
Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting of the root crowns.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
