How to grow Baby Blue Eyes (Nemophilia menziesii)
  Soil preference: Prefers light soils and dry conditions, but adaptable.
  Sun/Shade: Prefers some shade to filered sun
  Moisture Requirements: Average moisture, well-drained.
  Instructions: This native cannot take hot humid conditions. Give it light soil and scant moisture, if possible. Since this species blooms very quickly from seed, it is often a feature of early spring meadows where it adds wonderful color, and then since it is so short, it is quickly gone and covered by taller-growing summer wildflowers.
