Lucerne Blue-eyed Grass
Easy to grow and effortless to maintain!
The sword-like foliage stands straight up and out, 8 to 10 inches tall, creating a neat appearance for edging, the front of the border, or mixed plantings. And beginning in late spring and continuing into summer, deep blue blooms with yellow-starred centers dot the foliage.
Blue color is always welcome in the garden, and the wonderful thing about this Blue-Eyed Grass is that it's so easy, you tend to forget about the flowering until the bright blossoms begin their showy display! The foliage stays fresh until hard frost. What could be simpler or more elegant? Blue-Eyed Grass was Thoreau's favorite plant, and it's not hard to see why!
