Blue Eyed Grass forms dense clumps that resemble grass when they emerge in early spring. Delicate, blue-violet flowers develop at the end of thin stems that rise above the light blue-green leaf cluster. The flowers bear features of the Iris family, with their blue color and yellow centers.

Sisyrinchium angustifolium makes an attractive spring border in the garden, a mixed groundcover in a naturalized setting, and light shade is well tolerated. This is a moisture loving species that does best well-drained soils. Mature clumps can be divided every 2 to 3 years.

This common Blue Eyed Grass of the eastern United States is found in meadows, low woods, and along shorelines. It is a good early-season pollinator plant. Halictine bees are the most likely pollinators. Other common names include Bermuda Blue-Eyed Grass and Stout Blue-Eyed Grass.
