Blue-eyed Grass – 5/30/20

Observer: Paul Lauenstein

Observation Date: 5/30/20

Observation Time: 3:05 p.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Farm (TTOR)

Common Name: Blue-eyed grass

Scientific Name: Sisyrinchium angustifolium

Comments: Blue-eyed grass grows in fields, meadows and the edges of wetlands. This clump was growing along the dirt road under the high-tension lines. Except in spring when its small, blue flowers make it conspicuous, this plant is hard to pick out among other kinds of grasses.

Native Americans cooked and ate the greens, and used the plant medicinally to regulate the bowels.
