Tradescantia “Concord Grape”-Spiderwort

Propagating Spiderwort is easily done in the spring by digging up then dividing the clump. What is neat about this spiderwort are that its leaves are steel-blue and its blooms are a violet-purple shade. It will bloom most of the summer and early fall if you deadhead and will reach upwards of 18". Although it likes full sun this is one plant that prefers a moist, rich soil and will even tolerate wet sites beside a stream or pond. The flowers attract butterflies and rabbits prefer not to munch
