Aneilema acuminatum

Posted on Updated on

Aneilema acuminatumFamily: Commelinaceae
Genus: Aneilema
Common names: Aneilema
ALA reference

This is a vigorous but weak stemmed ground cover plant that likes moist and well shaded forest areas. It is related to our blue flowered native Wandering Jew Commelina cyanea. I found it growing beside the new fire trail where it seems to be associated with the regeneration of the native plants following the removal of the Cat’s Claw and Ochna. I’m hoping that with continuing good weather it will spread. (January 2008)
