Sisyrichium idahoense is a species of Blue-Eyed Grass native to the Western US and widespread in Oregon and Washington. Not truly a grass it is actually in the Iris (iridaceae) family. This small flowering perennial has purple flowers with yellow eye and flat blue green leaves. Does well in wet soil such as in and around rain gardens or low areas of the garden. Also grows in drier sites and is a great meadowscape plant but will go summer dormant without irrigation. While it will grow in shadier locations it may not flower well or at all and will put on the best floral show in Full Sun. This native wildflower will self-seed and naturalize but is not overly aggressive.
