March flowers at the Rough and Ready Botanical Wayside/flat
Purple-Eyed Grass/Satin-Flower/Grass Widows
Olysnium douglasii [Sisyrinchium douglasii]
(Iris family, Iridaceae)
This is the first flower of spring there at Rough and Ready.
Delicate little flowers about 6" to 12" tall on round stems.
Usually purplish-red, sometimes white. I have not seen this
many of these flowers in prior years but then I might not
have gotten there at the right time. There is also in one spot
some teeny little white flowers next to them.
This set is March 7, 2014
