Does anyone know anything about this plant. It looks like the plant Valadel has in her "Broken Pot". Dont know if it has a common name. Grass like leaves and a pale blue flower similar in shape and growth as Schitzostylis

On plant orthrosanthus polystachyus



I don't know that particular one, but we have Orthrosanthus latifolius (leastways that was what it came as, probably misnamed). They are basically Sisyrinchiums so growing conditions etc are the same for them as the latter.
