Blue Eyed Grass with no flowers

ceriseSeptember 8, 2013

My mother lives along the So. California coast and is growing Blue-Eyed Grass (or Sisyrinchium Bellum). Her plants are in large, thriving, very happy clumps but none of them produce flowers! The Blue Eyed Grass is planted in partial sun, along with a thyme ground cover... may be it gets too much water? (about every other day).

I told my mom I'd post the Q here to see if anyone had suggestions.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Sisyrinchium bellum begins flowering in the winter (in SoCal) and goes dormant sometime in June.

If your mother's plants are established and did not flower at all this year, she's probably watering too much. They shouldn't get more than twice-a-week water.
