Sisyrinchium

This genus in the Iris family includes the familiar wildfloweres Blue-eyed Grass and Yellow-Eyed Grass.

Sisyrinchium striatum full sun

Native to Chile, this elegant member of the Iris family is notable for its creamy multitudes of pale yellow blooms; each is centered with a deep buttery colored eye, and the back of each petal has a pronounced purple stripe—hence the epithet “striatum.” The slender flowering stems arise from erect, evergreen clumps of spiky green-gray leaves that extend to 18 in. Set off Yellow Blue-Eyed Grass with the dark, leafy foliage of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
