Day Flower

Several people have asked the name of the plant on the new Garden Studio Course information cards (for dates and details see courses).
It is a Commelina coelestis or Day Flower - A  fast-growing herbaceous perennial from Mexico with mid-green, lance-shaped leaves. Throughout the summer it bears these unusually bright blue flowers with yellow pistils and long curved stamen, each lasting only a day. I love the colours and also it fits so well with my gardening philosophy: Carpe Diem!
