Louisiana yellow-eyed grass, Xyris louisianica

Yellow-eyed grasses are one of those wildflowers southerners have so much of, and we northerners have so little of. They're one of the many sights that snowbirds can enjoy. Or maybe not. To really get a eyeful of yellow-eyed you have to venture south in the summertime. It's worth every mile and drop of sweat! Louisiana yellow-eyed grass grows in low pinelands and other damp spots in AL, FL, GA, LA, MS, and TX. Wakulla Co FL, 7/8/18. Yellow-eyed grass family, Xyridaceae.
