Common Dayflower

30 Aug

The rain this year has been good for the Common Dayflower. It is not a true native, and grows wild in many lawns (especially mine!). It spreads along the ground and roots easily, making it hard to eliminate from the landscape. But the tiny blue blossoms make what remain a bit more welcoming!

There is a native Dayflower, but it has 2 blue flower petals, with the third one white.
