Bird-Bill Day Flower Overview
Commelina tuberosa is a clumping, rhizomatous, perennial species commonly known by the name Dayflower because of their short flower lifespan. They are often grown as annuals, producing flowers one at a time, that last for a short time. The flowers are small, 3-petalled, blue, saucer-shaped and encased in a spathe-like modified leaf structure. Flower structure is only symmetrical in one plane, with the petals differing in size and shape across the flower, with two larger top petals and a reduced lower petal.
