Description

Sisyrinchium campestre (prairie blue-eyed grass or white-eyed grass) is a small herbaceous perennial plant in the iris family, native to prairie and meadow in the central United States and in extreme southern Manitoba.

Prairie blue-eyed grass is one of the more drought tolerant species in the genus. It blooms in late spring and early summer. The flowers are pale blue, with yellow centers. The leaves are grass-like, up to 10 inches (25 cm) long, and the flower stem is about as long as or a little longer than the leaves. Plants produce offsets and form a dense clump over time.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 10"

Location: Sun or part sun

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Seeds per pack: 30

Germination: Start these seeds indoors right away for best germination rates. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination can be 30-60 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
