Sisyrinchium "Quaint and Queer" (Brown-eyed Grass)
This Sisyrinchium, a member of the Iris family, has been around for quite a while, and it was on my wish list for almost as long. Finally, I have it, and I am not one bit disappointed. It has a lot going for it: First, it's a Sisyrinchium; nothing more needs to be said than that (in my book anyway). Second, unlike Sisyrinchiums that we see that are blue, yellow, or white, this one is, well...different. Some call it brown, tan, and purple, and even chocolate. It's a little of all of those colors (and flavors). "Quaint and Queer" is as easy as pie to grow and has a long blooming period in May and June. It likes full sun and average soil. It's ideal for rock gardens. Zones 6-9. Quarts.
