DESKTOP 252 - SPIDERWORT

Tradescantia 'Concord Grape' (Andersoniana group - 'spiderwort') is an attractive plant in the Commelinaceae family. It has triangular violet blue flowers with fuzzy purple stamens tipped with golden yellow pollen. It is a bright addition to the part shade garden for summer and blooms all season long. Arching blue green foliage stays cleaner if soil is not allowed to dry out too much. A late summer cut back will encourage a second round of flowering.
