A meadow dotted with clumps of this plant, often called blue-eyed grass, is a lovely sight. Where it is hardy, 'Aunt May' has earned its place in more formal settings. Its erect iris-like foliage striped with cream brings a vertical dimension to the border and contrasts with its mostly mounded neighbors. Poor to average soil is suitable for most types; blue-eyed grass thrives in damper conditions, where it self-seeds freely.
In full sun, pale yellow lupine makes a lovely color echo with cream-flowered Aunt May blue-eyed grass. The fingered lupine leaves contrast well with Aunt May's striped iris-like foliage.Perennial geranium
The vivid blue flowers and attractive foliage of Johnson's blue geranium provide an excellent foil for the upright variegated foliage and creamy flowers of Aunt May in full sun.Iris
Grow pretty little blue-eyed grass in front of taller Siberian iris. The flower and foliage size make a great contrast.
