The distinctive bicolored flowers are very beautiful and they make Blue-Eyed Mary easy to identify. This woodland wildflower is unusual in having flowers with a true blue color. The only other species in the genus that has been observed in Illinois is Collinsia violacea (Violet Collinsia). This latter plant has violet flowers and lanceolate leaves. It prefers sunnier habitats and is quite rare within the state.
