Angel's Tears

A Florida native plant,Angel's Tears is a dwarf,sprawling perennial.It flowers mainly in the spring,but this one is confused.It is flowering now.Confused from the cold winter and all of the freezes we had this past winter,perhaps?It spreads by creeping and grows in full shade to full sun.Zones 8B-10A.And it likes to live in moist,sunny spots.It is so easy to take cuttings from this plant,or to transplant it.The perfect Florida native,if you ask me.It is called Angel's Tears,because of the tiny lighter spots on the flower. Resemblant of tears,I guess?The flowers are tiny.Maybe,1/2"-3/4",each.

I don't think I've ever heard of this one.
Love the purple shade. It would be lovely around a deck I think.

My flower post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

I've never heard of it before, but it's very pretty! I'll have to look for some next time I'm at the nursery.
