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’.

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