Description
Everyone loves this well-named little gem. It’s lack of tolerance for heat is not usually a big problem, since it is so short and blooms so early, the plants are finished blooming before the mid-summer heat kills them and ascending taller plants hide them. The sky-blue flowers are a delight in early seeded meadows, blooming while other wildflowers are still in small seedling stage. See related species, Five Spot, N. maculata.

        We live on the edge of National Forest outside Rocky Mountain National Park at nearly 8000 feet above sea level with every type of wildlife imaginable and where gardening is a contact sport. This little flower bloomed all summer despite bears, bobcats, chipmunks that eat EVERYTHING, bunnies, deer, elk and wild turkeys. They are still blooming, even after a snowstorm and frost. Love those baby blue eyes!

          Comments about American Meadows Baby Blue Eyes Seeds - 1/4 LB:

          I inter-seeded a relatively small amount of this into a very weedy meadow, not expecting much success, and ended up being happy enough with the results that I'm planting more this year. I suspect with less weed competition it would have thrived even more. The early spring bloom was also pretty satisfying.

          I grow 100+ wildflower species in two large home meadows and am impressed enough with this species that I'll continue to integrate it into my annual seed mixes.

              Love the idea of these, but an entire pound yielded not a single bloom that I could see. I spread liberally in April and again in May in a lawn with bald spots where I expected these to flourish. About 3 to 6 hours of sun per day depending on the spot.

                  These blue flowers stop people in their tracks. They look like such danity and delicate little wild flowers that when I tell people I simply broadcast the seeds and they grow they don't beleive me. If you toss a little bit of dirt over the seeds you'll get larger yields. For the deep south these seeds need to be sow in Late Nov/Dec. They are long and consistent spring bloomers.
