Wildflower: Widow Grass

April 8, 2013

Today’s wildflower is widow grass, also known as grass widow, Latin name Sisyrinchium angustifolium. It is a member of the Iris family and is closely related to prairie blue-eyed grass. One glance at the photo below and you can see why “grass” appears in the flower’s name. This specimen was photographed right in Sumpter, OR, April 2012. It is one of Sumpter’s first spring wildflowers.
