Flower for the Day 5-23-12



Blue-eyed grass  Sisyrinchium campestre. This striking plant with its miniature blossom is native to Missouri. It was found in the woods in Innsbrook and identified by Chip Tynan of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Although its foliage is grass-like it is in the iris family.
