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.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
