Flora Found: Asiatic Dayflower

Asiatic Dayflower: Backyard Garden

This odd growing weed has always been a mystery. It grows low to the grown, in odd shaped rambles, a branch that way, a few that way. It has rigid and triangular stems, with lily like leaves. The oddest feature are the two petalled bright blue blossoms, with mini daisy like appendages.
The name comes from the fact that each blossom is very short lived, only a day.
