Commelina robusta

Commelina robusta
A stunning North American species similar in many ways to the popular but tender C.tuberosa, with bigger flowers, and a rather sprawling habit that makes it perfect for growing among plants that need a bit of jazzing up late in the season. Late to emerge (June) but flowers continuously from mid summer until bitten back by the frost.

Give it as much sun as possible and a retentive fertile soil, and maybe give it a protective mulch (though I'm not really convinced it needs it).
