The Q&A Archives: Ornamental Grass ID

Question: I am trying to identify an ornamental grass I saw growing in a commercial landscape. It looks similar to Maden grass, about 2' tall but it has bright yellow, small, daisy like flowers coming out of the center. Please help me ID this plant.
Thank You.

Answer: My guess is that it is Fortnight Lily (Dietes), also called African Iris. You can find photos on the web to see if they match the plant in question. Hope so!
