Scurvy Weed

Feature image of Scurvy Weed

Scientific Name: Commelina cyanea

Description

A weedy native that grows rather well in shade… this one has pretty blue flowers, not to be confused with the invasive white variety which is not a native plant.

I also read that you can eat the leaves… probably relates to the name “scurvy weed”, so next time I’m sufferinig from scurvy, I’ll have a munch on these.
