They may rebloom in the fall.Blue Eyed Grass prefers well drained sandy soils. Plant them in full sun to light shade. They are somewhat drought tolerant but they like evenly moist soil.

The Blue Eyed Grass is used in flower beds, cottage gardens, meadows, or rock gardens where it's self sowing habit and wandering ways are assets.
