Plant: California golden eyed grass (Sisyrinchium californicum) | Variety: Californicum

We’ll see if this grass tolerates the spot I’ve put it in. It’s the sunniest in the bed, but this little California native likes sun. So, it may get moved, and something more shade tolerant may take its place.

“Sisyrinchium californica, Yellow-Eyed Grass, is a small perennial about 8 inches tall. It forms a little clump of iris leaves. The flowers are yellow and appear May through June. Yellow-Eyed Grass likes moist areas. It grows in the wild along the coast ranges. Yellow-Eyed Grass likes full sun near the coast. It does fine in the interior with a little afternoon shade and regular water. "
