Every garden--and more important, every gardener--deserves at least one plant like 'Lucerne'. It requires absolutely no care after planting, and returns year after year for three solid months of fresh, neat foliage, plus two seasons of cheery blue blooms. The sword-like foliage stands straight up and out, 8 to 10 in. tall, creating a neat appearance for edging, the front of the border, or mixed plantings. And beginning in late spring and continuing into summer, deep blue blooms with yellow-starred centers dot the foliage. Amazingly beautiful when planted in mass.

  • A stunning flower display when planted in mass
  • Foolproof grassy perennial with yellow-eyed blue blooms in early summer
  • Great for edging and accent planting
  • Easy to grow and effortless to maintain
  • 1 gal. pot - state or federal regulations may require this plant to ship as a bare root plant, without pot and without soil
  • We're sorry, this plant cannot be shipped to Mississippi

how much to water these plants

This question is from 1 gal. Lucerne Blue-Eyed Grass Plant
Asked by
Harlingen, TX
Read all my Q&A
March 10, 2016
We winter in Harlingen, TX at the southern tip of Texas, and here for six months from October through March. We get some temps in the sixties but mostly in the seventies and eighties. The summer months are very hot and temps of 100 degrees are the norm. We would not be able to water them. Are these a good choice for our situation? There is a lot of dew in this subtropical climate that keeps the grass very green. Would that be enough to sustain them during the months we are not here to care for them? Thank you for any guidance you can provide!

Answer: 
Hi Gordy,
These plants are touted as being one of the most care free plants around. While they are heat and drought resistant perennials, they thrive best in climate zones 3 through 8.
Your area in south Texas is in zone 9, which can be a bit hot for these plants.
To help them thrive in your area, give them some afternoon shade to protect them from the heat.
Thank you for asking,
-Travis

The top 2/3rds of my grass dies, turns black, and looks ugly. It is very tiring and time consuming to trim it back with scissors/shears. What should I do?

Answer: 
For this plant, Sisyrinchium Augustafolium "Lucerne" you should cut back to the ground in the Fall once all flowering has completed. Winter mulch with leaf mold or compost mulch in colder climates. Happy gardening.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. To tidy the foliage of Blue-Eyed Grass, trim back after bloom period ends. The plant can also be clipped in early spring before new growth begins. Perhaps hedge shears or a mower set on its tallest height would help minimize the pruning labor or time.

Answer: 
Hello, yes, the 'Lucerne can be grown in a pot. The container will need to be taken into an unheated area, such as a garage, for the winter.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blooming plant Plant has start to bloom and grow Looks good nice plant May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by How Beautiful Filling in my fence line at the back of my property, mixing several plants to soften the fencing. Arrived healthy, planted and starting to grow and bloom within 2 weeks. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good but not amazing Shipping was very quick. Packaging was nicely done. Plants were decent size and in decent shape but there was a decent amount of dead foliage in each of them... I bought 3. After removing the dead parts the plants were about half as full and thick when I got them and seem to be doing well but don't appear to have filled out much yet. Only one so far has gotten a flower on it but I have high hopes for their appearance next spring. We'll see how they survive the winter... if they do. So far so good... August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Perrenials Home Depot offers full size perennials that actually look like the pictures on the site. They arrive quickly, very well packed, and vibrantly healthy. Prices are a tad high but the quality and convenience is hard to beat. September 30, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Does not bloom Does not bloom. Seems to need plenty of water. Even after watering, does not bloom. Would not recommend. July 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Small but should be pretty next year I love the look of this grass and the little blue flowers. The plant is small but like with all perenials it will take a year or two to get to its full size. But I would recommend buying these. I may get a few more. June 11, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Minimal Maintance I only purchased 2 of these and wish that I had gotten 3 or 4 more. They are so easy to care for and just beautiful. They've made a wonderful addition to the small flower garden under my bay window. Would highly recommend for anyone with a busy schedule that wants to add some color to their yard. May 26, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Such a pretty plant! These plants arrived very well packaged, a nice starter size at about 5 inches in height and with some blooms. They have been growing very nicely. Out of 30 plants, I may only have to return a couple that are not doing so well. June 12, 2012
