Artist's Description

The cheerful blue eyes of this dainty wildflower often seem to float among blades of grass. It isn’t a grass at all and believe it or not it belongs to the iris family. You can check it by running your fingers along the stems. You will discover that these stems are distinctly two-sided, not round like those of grass. Also, the leaves attach edgewise to the stem.
The seeds can take more than two years to germinate, so these delicate, tiny (6-10mm across), bright violet blue, star-shaped blossoms seldom peek out from the flowerbeds.
They grow in moist, open sites and bloom late May to July.

I photographed this one ion a ditch just outside of Anola, Manitoba on HWY #15.
