Please identify this flower. It is in the Azores (Pico island). Probably birds brought it a couple years ago to my pit yard. It is very spreading, even to the bottoms of pots and around pines etc. Could be invasive and... it blooms year round, incessantly. Very beautiful indeed and I want to spread it more to decorate my yard. I suspect it may not like too much wind. That's why it did not get out of this pit yet. Top of the pot does not have it growing, only the bottom. That's how they spread sometimes, from another nearby pot. A mystery flower. Crazy beautiful.

I agree
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
