    20 open pollinated seeds from our gardens for $4.00.


    Sisyrinchium californicum (Yellow-eyed Grass) is a is a clump-forming, semi-evergreen perennial forming a tuft of narrow, grass-like leaves with bright yellow flowers. It is native to the west coast from British Columbia to California and can be found at the edge of bogs and in moist grasslands. Grows to around 30cm.


    Great in rock gardens, cottage gardens, front of borders and along pathways. I like to grow mine around the base of my terracotta pots. It gives the display of pots a more natural look.


    These plants are very easy to grow from seeds and will readily self seed. Sow seeds in autumn. Gently press seeds onto of the soil and gently water. If you are in a warmer area, seeds will need to be placed in the fridge for approximately 6 weeks prior to sowing. Transplant out after danger of frost has passed.


    For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Place in water immediately.
