Description

A charming selection of the Blue-eyed Grass, valuable in the rock garden as well as for edging in the border. Plants form a low clump of grassy green leaves, bearing bright blue star-shaped flowers in late spring for several weeks. Not really a grass, these are close cousins to the more familiar garden Iris. This selection is one of the best for areas with hot, humid summers. Clumps may be easily divided in fall or early spring. A true little gem!
