Description
The Spiderworts ("wort" means simply stem, leaf or plant) are named for their discoverer, John Tradescant, an early English plant explorer. This one is native from Canada to Florida, and west to Illinois. The unusual ("spider-like) flowers have three petals each, and the whole plant has a rather tropical appearance, with blooms that range from pinkish to deep purple. They tolerate shade and enjoy lots of moisture.
