Purple flowers on creeping weed

shear_stupidity(9B)January 14, 2013

I'm in Central Coastal Florida. This weed has been growing against the house and under shrubs... mostly shaded areas or part shade. Need identification and best way to get rid of it. It seems to come up well with pulling, but it just comes right back.

A Commelina. There are many. The native C. diffusa, is a possibility.
