Blue Eyed Grass (Sisyrinchium Montanum)

Without its flower it would look like just another blade of grass. It is of the iris family. The plant, while small, is stiff and erect, and holds a flamboyant mauve flower to the world; its six petals, tipped with a small points, streaked to its brilliant yellow center. Look for blue-eyed grass along the meadows, the marsh edges and the shore.
