  1. Thank you describing multiple aspect of the plant, very useful! Posted one year ago
    1. You're welcome. The winged flower stalk with fine marginal teeth (a hand lens is needed) and its midvein help to distinguish this species from the similar Sisyrinchium mucronatum. Posted one year ago

''Sisyrinchium montanum'', or American blue-eyed grass, or strict blue-eyed grass, is a grass-like species of plants from the genus ''Sisyrinchium'' native to northern North America from Newfoundland west to easternmost Alaska, and south to Pennsylvania in the east, and to New Mexico in the Rocky Mountains.

It is very similar to ''S. angustifolium'', with which it is sometimes combined.
