One of my favorites because of its excellent name and color, and because mere ovoid petals weren’t enough, they needed that little barb on the ends. There are several varieties of blue-eyed grass—Stout is often pale blue like this. Native perennial. Iris family.

Another beautiful name. Saw these at Red Wing. Love the color and the smudges of pollen.
