I would like to add this as a new plant on the site if no one has done so..but I never know how to put the trade name and requirements it asks for other than the common name and a photo..so if it is not on here someone help me please to add it.

I found this fabulous wildflower called Blue Eyed Grass at a nursery out in the country in Alabama. I fell in love with the tiny bright sky blue flowers!
I bought 2 of them and placed them at the front of my
Sheri's healing flower garden..one in front of a small trellis that has a clematis growing on it..
the blue eyed grass accents the clematis on the small iron
trellis...

I just can not stop walking out to the flower bed to admire
these beautiful tiny blue blooms and to touch the grass
below the blooms of this plant!

The local Blue-Eyed Grass are doing pretty well in the wild this year!

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White
