Sisyrinchium 'Moody Blues' (Blue-eyed grass)

'Moody Blues' is a boldly colored blue-eyed grass from the breeding work of Jeltto seeds.  The brilliant violet blue blooms are adorned with yellow eyes and cheerfully hang above the grass-like foliage.  This improved US native is a great addition to the woodland setting, rock garden, container garden, and container plantings.   We have enjoyed these plants for years here in Delaware, where we have a couple native types.  They love well-drained soil and a bit of compost at planting time.  The large flush of blooms happens in early summer, and they will sporadically bloom after this without a trim but will bloom heavier if given a trim before the seed is set.   Butterflies and pollinators love the blooms.  A great choice for the mid-Atlantic region.
