Notes:

The coolest thing besides the two pedal flower, is that it closes up and hides the flower around mid day. I want to propagate it I’d any way possible. And want to put it in the correct part of my yard.

    Looks like a species in the Commelina genus (dayflower). I can’t see the details clearly enough to be certain if this is the native whitemouth dayflower (C. erecta). Check out the included link below for more information on key identifying characteristics for Commelina erecta. Also click the tab for the non-native Commelina communis species to compare between the two. The second link is for propagation methods. Best wishes! http://wildflowerlense.com/cpages/co_er/co_er.html
