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 short stalks topped with small flowers. The flowers are very small, violet with six petals and a yellow center. The flowers are are followed by rounded seed pods. This plant is a great native landscaping alternative to monkey grass on borders and margins. Clumps can be divided every few years and planted in the desired configuration in fall.
