Sisyrinchium angustifolium (Blue-Eyed Grass) [20 Seeds]
Germination Information: Ideally, sow the seeds in fall to midwinter on moist potting soil and gently press them into the surface, then set outdoors for germination when conditions are right in spring. If sowing in February or later, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about 2 months.
I have seen one reputable reference that says that these seeds will sprout in warm, moist conditions without a prior chilling period, but I haven’t tried that yet and so can’t give a personal recommendation.
