Hee hee! Thanks Pixie, the blue color is one of the purest blues you can get in a garden methinks, but that little dayflower can be very invasive! (ps. - Thanks Sue! ☺)

Excellent shot! I had one of these babies sneak in with a Pitcher Plant a friend sent me;o) Took me a while to figure out what it was. They sure are a beautiful blue. A bit easier to control here with our brutal summers.

I brought home a couple of pieces of this plant when I made a trip to visit a friend and she had it growing in her yard. Loved the little blue flowers. Now I know what it is and can get it planted in the right place.
