2007 Photograph, Virginia Dayflower (Commelina virginica, Spiderwort family, Commelinaceae), Occoquan Bay NWR, Woodbridge, Virginia. © 2014.
Each flower lasts but one day, hence the name.  This species is similar to the Erect Dayflower and Asiatic Dayflower, but the obvious difference is the large, blue lower petal.
