Sisyrinchium Lucerne Description

Lucerne Sisyrinchium (aka Blue Eyed Grass) is a semi-evergreen sun loving groundcover with Iris-like foliage. Numerous, bright blue upward facing starry flowers bloom up to 10 weeks beginning in late spring.

Plants form a small fan-like tuft of leaves resembling dwarf Iris that stay attractive looking  throughout the year. This clump forming perennial slowly spreads by creeping rhizomes making an ideal low maintenance groundcover.  An alternative to Liriope.

It is at home when planted along the edge of a rain garden or stream where it will thrive in a moist setting provided it has sufficient drainage. Use Sisyrinchium as a foreground planting to reblooming Daylilies, colorful Heucheras, or drought tolerant Sedums.

Special Features: Butterfly Lovers,  Deer Resistant, Easy Care, Evergreen, Foliage Interest, Moisture Tolerant, Pest Resistant, Rabbit Resistant

Fertilizing: Apply a low dose of high-nitrogen fertilizer in spring.
Winterizing: No special care needed.
Maintenance & Pruning: Remove old foliage in spring before new leaves emerge. Most varieties will self-sow; therefore, seed heads should be removed if you don't want it to spread. Divide clumps every 3-5 years in early spring. Easy to propagate by dividing plantlets away from the parent plant. Break off or cut the rhizomes away from the main plant, including the slender foliage of the young plants that form at the base. Plant them as individual specimens for increased spring beauty.
