As their name suggests, Bluets have small blue flowers. There are several species of bluets. Flowers are four petaled, at the tops of the
stem, usually about 4 to 10 inches above the ground. We often come across clumps of these pretty small blue flowers in woods or fields
in spring and early summer, although some species may bloom in late summer and into the fall. Small leaves are paired on the stem.

Azure Bluet (Houstonia caerulea)

A common spring wildflower. Clumps of azure bluets are often seen in open woods and fields in April and June, sometimes carpeting fairly
large areas.
