Color Crazy Challenge – Asiatic dayflower( commelina communis)

Commelina communis, also known as  Asiatic dayflower, is an annual plant producing stems 25 – 70cm long. In my area this flower is grown as an ornamental plant but, I read that in China it is commonly cultivated as a vegetable. The consumable parts are leaves, flowers and young shoots – raw or cooked.

The plant is also harvested from the wild for local use as a food, medicine and source of a dye. I had no idea that this plant is edible. What about you?
