Sisyrinchium
An intresting group of plants belonging to the Iris family. In the wild they are found in the Americas where they prefer moister soils. Much more adaptable in cultivation, a well drained soil is essential but still prefering a soil that does not dry out. All are clump forming and division is advisable every few years to maintain vigour. S striatum is a reliable self seeder in the border or dry garden, whereas the variegated form can only be increased by replanting the non-flowering fans. The smaller forms make ideal rockery or edging plants Culture Best grown in medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade. Prefers consistently moist soils that do not dry out, but drainage must be good. Will freely self-seed in optimum growing conditions. Plantings may be sheared back after bloom to avoid any unwanted self-seeding and/or to tidy foliage for remaining part of the growing season. Plants may need to be divided every 2-3 years to keep plantings vigorous. Sisyrinchium graminoides 'Lucerne' is often referred to as 'Blue Eyed Grass', but it is technically not an ornamental grass. The grass-like foliage forms compact clumps that are topped with bright purplish-blue, star-like flowers with a bright yellow throat. Perfect for rock gardens or in front of the perennial border! Blooming: Blooms star, cup, or trumpet shaped flowers in a range of colors such as white, yellow, blue, and mauve. Soil and Irrigation: Grows best in soil that is poor to moderately fertile, well-drained, and neutral to slightly alkaline. Protect plants from excessive moisture during the winter. Fertilization: Does fine in poor to moderately fertile soil. Pruning: Maintain a healthy framework. Pests: Affected by spider mites, aphids, and rust.
