    Described elsewhere as an annual. One that popped up here once didn’t persist. The small flowers are solitary and do not make a show. They also open only during bright conditions.

    Phenominal! I love how the pollen has dusted off on the petal… Such a swirl of stunning sunset hues!

    Anagalis arvensis belongs to the Primulaceae family and not Myrsinaceae; moreover the flower colour is bright blue.

    Myrsinaceae via the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group.
    Re: the flower colour – some cultivars, perhaps, are that colour, but in English the common name is scarlet pimpernel, implying the colour above.
