skyflower, Hydrolea corymbosa

Skyflower made me think of Michael Johnson's "Bluer than Blue". But that's completely inappropriate for this incredibly bright bloom. Well, maybe not completely. Skyflowers seem to hang out in that zone between the edge of the swamp, and the higher, more habitable ground. So if you're bluer than blue, look for skyflower to lead you to a better place. Even if you don't find it, the search is a good cure. These two-third inch blooms grow in patches in AL, FL, GA, and SC. Wakulla Co FL, 7/8/18.
