Sisyrinchium angustifolium
at Digging Dog

Sisyrinchium

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

Sisyrinchium angustifolium full sun

Endemic to damp open woods, fields and slopes throughout the eastern and southeastern U.S., this unusual white blooming form of the more commonly known, Blue-Eyed Grass was kindly given to us by grass aficionado, John Greenlee. Perfect for cut arrangements, delicate 6-petaled starry blossoms with golden eyes illuminate attractive loosely arranged flower clusters rising on winged branching stalks. The neat foot long green leaves compose a compact Iris-like tuft that prefers well-drained sufficiently moist crannies, favors being divided every 2 or 3 years and looks best when massed in cottage gardens, native plant settings, border fronts and rockeries./p>

Blooms May–June

Size: 12"–18" high x 6"–12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

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.
