Asiatic Dayflower. Its a shame they are so aggressive and invasive, because the flowers are the prettiest blue. They are a somewhat distant relative of the spiderworts.

Commelina, or dayflower. They are a trap for flea beetles in my garden and look terrible about mid-summer. And reseed everywhere. Pretty easy to pull out though.
