Is this a native plant? 6, 2013

I've had this plant for over a year. It has not flowered, to date. I'd love to know what it is and if it is a native plant to Georgia. It has grass-like bluish-green silky leaves about 10" max.

Did you buy it, dig it up, or ??? A few more details might help the ID.

It resembles silkgrass, Pityopsis. Are the leaves silvery on one side?

I dug this from the side of the road on a berm of sandy soil. It does have silvery leaves.

I now believe this is a Pityopsis graminifolia (Narrowleaf Silkgrass) and thankfully it is native. I probably repotted it in a soil mix that is too rich and moist and that's possibly why it hasn't flowered. Thanks for the posts!
