Commelina for ID photographed from along Chikkamagalur mullayanagiri Road, 26-9-2015.

Could it be Cyanotis-fasciculata?

No, …

Pl. check with images at Commelina diffusa Burm.f.

To me it looks like Commelina tricolor E. Barnes. One of the beautiful, spreading/ mat forming commelinas of southern peninsular India.
