    Don't know why I've always called this weed "blue-eyed grass" - it isn't a "grass" at all, but it sure is an invasive weed! Bur even "weeds" can offer some little something that when seen can be amazingly beautiful.

    The flowers on the herb, Hyssop, are tiny, to say the least, so this is about as good as I can get with it.

    This darling little bloom is one of the "bind weeds" that are all over my seedling bed and cause problems. No doubt related to the beautiful "Morning Glories", too

    Ever notice all the subtle colors in a group of coleus seedlings? The snails did!

    What you call blue eyed grass is really Blue Dayflower ,
    Commelina communis. This is one of the most beautiful weeds in my opinion - love the pure blue color of it.

    The plant below is most commonly known as blue eyed grass.
    Sisyrinchium spp.

    I love the blue eyed grass. There is also a native one that has a truer light blue flower. I also have some yellow eyed grass but it doesn't bloom as much as the blue. It is related to the iris.
    Rebecca, do you ever get any seeds from the day flower? HINT.

    Sue,

    Are you nuts! Believe me, you do not want to get this weed started on your property. You think the wild honeysuckle, poison ivy and vinca were bad! I generally try to pull it all out whenever I see it, but have fallen behind on weed pulling as usual.

    Bob,

    Thank you for the image of the true "Blue-eyed Grass". I came across a small stand of it decades ago when I lived in the southern part of the state and have loved it ever since. I don't recall ever seeing it growing wild here in Central Indiana.

    Tried to get a close up of the very tiny blooms on Russian Sage, but haven't up loaded the images yet. If I get/got a good one, I'll have to post it to this thread.


    Rebecca
