The Erect Dayflower, Commelina erecta, is a tiny flowered member of the Commelinaceae or spiderwort family. They are easily mistaken for a grasslike weed in your lawn. They usually grow between 8-10 inches tall. I have seen them in full sun and partial shade environments. Their 1 inch wide flowers are a beautiful shade of light blue. Members of the Commelinaceae have 3 petals on their flowers. The Erect Dayflower has three also but the third petal is reduced or sometimes absent so their flowers appear to have 2 big petals. Their petals reflect light so their color can appear paler or more whitish under bright conditions. The specimen in this photo was underneath a huge tree and provided the proper light to show off those pretty petals. This species can be found blooming from spring to late fall.
