Blue Eyed Grass (Sisyrinchium angustifolium) is a charming and delicate-looking perennial that adds a touch of whimsy and color to gardens and meadows. Despite its common name, this plant is not a true grass, but rather a member of the iris family. Its dainty, star-shaped flowers and grass-like foliage create an appealing aesthetic that works well in a variety of garden settings.
Blue Eyed Grass is a petite, clump-forming perennial that typically reaches heights of 6-12 inches and spreads about 6-12 inches wide. Its slender, grass-like leaves form dense tufts that provide an attractive ground cover or filler in mixed plantings. This versatile plant is hardy in USDA zones 4-9, making it suitable for a wide range of climates. Blue Eyed Grass prefers full sun to light shade and thrives in well-drained soils, making it an excellent choice for rock gardens, borders, and meadow plantings.
Although Blue Eyed Grass is relatively low-maintenance, it benefits from occasional division to maintain vigor and control its spread. Additionally, it is deer-resistant and drought-tolerant once established, making it a reliable and resilient choice for various garden situations.
One of the main attractions of Blue Eyed Grass is its delicate, star-shaped flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer. The flowers, which typically measure around 0.5-1 inch across, feature six blue-violet petals surrounding a striking, yellow-centered eye. The blooms are held atop slender, wiry stems that rise above the foliage, creating an enchanting and airy display in the garden.
The flowers of Blue Eyed Grass not only offer visual appeal but also attract a variety of pollinators, including bees and butterflies, contributing to a biodiverse and healthy garden ecosystem.
Following the flowering period, Blue Eyed Grass produces small, inconspicuous, capsule-like fruit that contains numerous seeds. The fruit is typically hidden among the plant's foliage and is not considered ornamental. Gardeners can collect the seeds for propagation or allow the plant to self-seed and naturalize in the garden.
