Baldwin's yellow-eyed grass is a small spring and summer flowering Southeast US coastal native that occurs in open, sunny pinelands and pitcher-plant flats and bogs from coastal North Carolina to East Texas. In situ, fire is critical to maintain the open habitat, but in a garden setting, weeding serves the same purpose. Xyris baldwiniana is a member of the Xyridaceae family, that prefers sandy/peat-based soils that never dry out. The upright thin, rush-like foliage is topped with a flower head that resembles a miniature brown pine cone with tiny yellow flowers opening daily over several months. Our offering is propagated from a population in Georgia.
