Idaho Blue-eyed grass (Sisyrinchium idahoense) Seed Packet WW


( / )

Please select all options.

A charming little member of the Iris family with the tell-tale, flattened, grass-like foliage that is typical of this family. Flowering stems culminate in clusters of one to five flowers. Sweet, purplish-blue blooms, with a bright yellow eye, are up to 1 inch across. Blooms open in the bright light of day and close in darkness of night. This low-grower is wonderful at the front of a border mixed with other demure perennials. Good in rock gardens. Also great along pond or bog edges, as this species does well at handling excess moisture. Deciduous. Deer-resistant.
