SISYRINCHIUM angustifolium ‘Lucerne’

Blue-eyed Grass –

0135The Lucerne variety of Blue-eyed grass is a popular choice in rock gardens, border edges, and adding texture to any planter. The bright flowers emerge in early spring and last for several weeks. Technically not a grass, the Blue-eyed is related to the Iris.  Lucern will tolerate our hot summers and can easily be divided each year in early spring or fall.

Lupine – In full sun, pale yellow lupine makes a lovely color echo with cream-flowered Aunt May blue-eyed grass. The fingered lupine leaves contrast well with Aunt May’s striped iris-like foliage.
Perennial geranium – The vivid blue flowers and attractive foliage of Johnson’s blue geranium provide an excellent foil for the upright variegated foliage and creamy flowers of Aunt May in full sun.
Iris – Grow pretty little blue-eyed grass in front of taller Siberian iris. The flower and foliage size make a great contrast.
