Tradescantia bracteata - Prairie Spiderwort THIS IS A LISTING FOR A PACK OF 50 SEEDS. Prairie spiderwort is acompact, clump-forming herbaceous perennial which typically grows 30cm tall. Rose/purple, three-petaled flowers with contrasting yellowstamens open up, a few at a time, each for only one day, from terminalclusters containing numerous flower buds. Flowers bloom in successionfrom late May into early July. Arching, iris-like, dark green leavesup to 30cm long and 2cm wide are folded lengthwise forming a groove.Native to the US mid-west, it is found in sunny locations on prairies,meadows, fields, roadsides and railroad right-of-ways. When the stemsof spiderworts are cut, a viscous stem secretion is released whichbecomes threadlike and silky upon hardening (like a spider's web),hence the common name.Hardy in Zones 4 - 9, this is tolerant of a wide range of soilconditions except where it is not well drained. It will spread andself seed where happy and may give a second later flush of flowers ifit is cut back after the first flowering to encourage new growth.Full instructions can be downloaded from my website, details of whichare on my 'Me' page
