Name This Plant Game

The plant pictured here in this blog post is one that I have been asked about numerous times.  I am starting to see it more and more in the wild landscape, so I thought I would identify it so that all of you at home know what you are looking at.  While the blue flowers may be pretty--this Asiatic Dayflower or Commelina communis is yet another one of our non-native species. Though I do not believe it has actually reached "invasive" status yet it is certainly aggressive, and should be removed.  The good news is that it is really easy to hand pull--and it does not bite back like many of our other invasive plants.  The other bonus is that it is an annual, so keep it from setting seed, and it will be removed from your property!!

Interested in more tips about invasive/non-native species management??? Schedule your Landscape Visionaries session today to have a TLC staff person come out to your property and discuss your "plant problems"
