    What has blade of grass-like "leaves" that are ~1/4" long and what has the same, only ~1/2" long? I had U. bisquamata flowering and possibly spreading last year and it kinda fizzled out into nothing during the winter. I have several pots with the 1/4" leaves in them.

    I also received a pinch of grass blades that came in as U. sandersonni blue - but they didn't have that ovoid "leaf" shape as does straight up sandersonii and another pinch I had. This, too, is sending up stalks.

    Hmmm.... I have praelonga and that's a significantly different plant. I've never had an oderata. I'm suspicious of subulata, because someone once warned me that it I probably have it and don't know it, just because it gets into everything.

    Okay, the one with the 1/4" leaves is now blooming and its flower is light purple. So I guess that rules out bisquamata & subulata?

    light prple? doesnt really narrow it down although it definatly rules out U. odorata. 1/3 of the Utrics that flower for me are some shade of purple, 1/3 are yellow and the other third is everything else

    Doesn't U. bisquamata have some purple?

    Is it in full bloom and is all purple?
