Sisyrinchium montanum (Fr: bermudienne montagnarde | EN: strict blue-eyed-grass)
This small flower is the more common of two blue-eyed-grasses to live in our region growing in small clumps and having pretty purple flowers. It is a great plant to include in rock gardens, or bordering trails as it can tolerate both flooding and drought and is short, rarely surpassing 15 cm, so it wont get in the way of sidewalks and pathways.
