I used to know what it was, but then I forgot the name of it. D'Oh! D'Oh! D'Oh! D'Oh!

If not Asiatic Dayflower (Commelina communis) perhaps a variety of Tradescantia? The leaves remind me a bit of:


Not certain but I think both of these are found in Mass:
Virginia spiderwort (Tradescantia virginiana)
Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis)

Thank you, @plantladylin and @terrafirma! I think it's an Asiatic Dayflower or as I know it, a Dayflower. Hurray!

Only because I have beds that are overrun with it. I know it as a "weed"! Hilarious!

I tip my hat to you.

Yes, they're horrible! Growing all over the place, in my chives, in my flowers — everywhere! Angry
