Now blooming: Blue eyed grass

Blue-eyed grass is an evergreen, clump-forming perennial wildflower with dainty, star-shaped flowers. They vary in color from blue to purple to lavender, and have bright yellow centers that are framed in dark purple. 

Don't let the name fool you -- it's not a grass at all. The grasslike appearance of both stems and leaves give this plant its common name, but it's actually a member of the iris family.
