Narrowleaf Blue-Eyed Grass

Neither a grass, nor blue-eyed, this clump forming member of the lily family consists of a mass of grass-like slender basal leaves that put forth delicate stalks topped with small flowers. The flowers are very small, violet, and have six petals with a yellow center. The blooms are are followed by rounded seed pods. This plant is a great native landscaping alternative to monkey grass on borders and margins. Individual clumps can be divided  every few years in the fall and planted in the desired configuration.
