I googled it and I think that is what I remember the picture looking like. But what I have is still only some leaves sprouting. What conditions do they need to grow well?? Full sun, partial shade, how much water???

They're tall, big leaves, grass like
and a beautiful little flower comes out
the end....
I thought they liked moist conditions..
But are hardy and not picky as far as the soil..
Likes sun

I think Widow's Tears are Commelinantia anomala, also known as dayflowers.
