Blue Post


Blue-eyed grass with a token anemone. These were growing near a tiny creek called, "Flat Branch".


A closer look.

Lyre Leaf Sage.
This plant grows near my gate and is one of many. It is the 22nd generation of seeds I collected along A1A when I was an NPS Ranger at Fort Matanzas in the 80's.



Blue Flag iris is kicking in all over around here. This one was in Mule Creek near Gulf Hammock, but my iris down at the pond (yes, it is still a pond!) is just about to bloom.

Not really blue, but the token Anemone deserves a shot here too!

It's nice to see some things blooming! I love blue eyed grass, and blue flag iris. I'll see them in a month or so here.

Hi FC,

My blue eyed grass is so pretty! Wish I had more. Two clumps didn't come back very well.

I need to find me some of those beautiful Anemones!

The blue-eyed grass at the Fen just started blooming in the last few days. We have 2 species. I suspect that this is one of the few cases where phenology in Florida and Illinois are reasonably synchronized.

So, Three Collie, Deb, Patti, and Doug,
Blue-eyed grass must have a broad continental range ... like pileated woodpeckers.
Also, I found what appears to be yellow-eyed grass.

Carol,
I love the way they multiply quickly. Such a great plant.

Caroline,
Enjoy ours while you wait!

Dani,
I'm going back to check for seed at some point.
