Blue Porterweed (Stachytarpheta Jamaicensis)


This photo was taken near the beach in Bengkulu Sumatera Indonesia. The blue porterweed (Stachytarpheta Jamaicensis) is a common weed grows wildly in my town. When it blooms, the litle blue flower will blooms along the snake like inflorescense making this plant so exotic. I think,with the beauty it posses, this plant actually may be suitable for the garden plant.
