I'm not going to call dayflowers ''weeds'' in my garden.
Aggressive growth coupled with almost inconspicuous flowers could categorize any plant as a ''weed.'' And many species of dayflower are considered just that, especially in parts of the South and Southwest.
Take an even closer look at a dayflower. Zoom in on the flower, and below the two prominent, azure petals you'll see a third petal, pale compared to the other two and much smaller.
