Blue-eyed grass

Several years ago I planted two clumps of blue-eyed grass (Sisyrinchium angustifolium) in the upper garden.  Blue eyed grass is not really a grass; it's actually more closely related to the iris.  Maybe that's why I like it so well.  Unfortunately, it was never happy in my garden, and didn't last very long.  These pics from 2009 document the last time I saw it:

When I was cleaning up the terraces this spring, I saw a clump of grass just ouside the daylily area:

I wasn't sure what it was, so I let it stay for a while.  Checking back, I saw that yes, my blue-eyed grass has returned! 

I'm confused, but happy. Now I need to find a better home for it.
