Although its leaves are low growing and grass-like, Western Blue-Eyed Grass is more closely related to an iris than members of the grass family. This perennial is quite variable in height, depending on soil and light, but stays within a height range of 10-40cm (4-16″). The numerous, small, tidy flowers appear from spring into mid-summer. It works well in containers, and it looks amazing in mass plantings, but it does not stand up to foot traffic. Prefers partial shade.
