#atozchallenge – Nature & Outdoors Theme
Xyris – Known as Yellow-eyed grass.
X is the only letter I could not find anything in the nature theme in New Zealand, that I know well, having worked or seen in my lifetime, so I have gone for the plant Xyris.
It is a perennial aquatic plant found near swamps, shallow ponds, and wet drains, it has long stems topped with a scale-covered brown spike, the spike produces a number of yellow flowers.
There seem to be different types of Xyris but all known as the same type of yellow-eyed grass family, most of them seem to be in some part of the USA.
As I have never seen it, maybe you haven’t either, so hopefully, I have described it correctly.
