Sisyrinchium angustifolium, S. idahoense, Blue-eyed Grass

Native to much of North America this is a small plant resembling miniature iris, grass-like clumps bear a long succession of iris-like pale to deep blue flowers with yellow throats. Individual flowers are 3/4 inch across. Though their foliage is grass-like, the blue-eyed grasses belong to the iris family not the grass family. Sisyrinchium angustifolium is noted for its violet-blue flowers. It is a clump-forming perennial that features a tuft of narrow grass-like leaves (to 3/16" wide) typically growing to 12" (less frequently to 20") tall. Clusters of blue flowers (to 1/2" across), each with 6 pointed tepals and a yellow eye, appear in spring on stalks growing from leaf-like bracts atop usually branched flowering stems which are distinctively flattened. Best naturalized in informal garden areas such as cottage gardens, woodland gardens, wild gardens or native plant areas. Also effective in border fronts and rock gardens. Also effective as an edger for paths or walkways.

Best grown in well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade. Prefers consistently moist soils that do not dry out, but drainage must be good. Tolerates summer drought. Will freely self-seed in optimum growing conditions. Plantings may be sheared back after bloom to avoid any unwanted self-seeding and/or to tidy foliage for remaining part of the growing season. Plants may need to be divided every 2-3 years to keep plantings vigorous.

Height: 12 in.

Conditions: Full Sun, GOOD DRAINAGE

Hardiness Zone: 5-8

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS COME WITH THE SEEDS.

I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING PAYPAL BECAUSE IT IS AN EBAY COMPANY AND NOT SAFE FOR A SELLER TO USE. I TAKE CHECKS AND MONEY ORDERS ONLY. DUE TO NON-PAYING BUYERS LIKE GardenerGram I HAVE ENDED THE FREE SHIPPING AND NO LONGER TAKE ANY E - PAYMENTS. DON'T LIKE IT? WELL YOU CAN USUALLY FIND IT ON EBAFIA FOR TWICE THIS PRICE OR HALF THIS SIZE.
