Tradescantia bracteata - Prairie Spiderwort

This is a listing for a pack of 50 seeds.

Prairie spiderwort is a compact, clump-forming herbaceous perennial which typically grows 30 cm tall. Rose/purple, three-petaled flowers with contrasting yellow stamens open up, a few at a time, each for only one day, from terminal clusters containing numerous flower buds. Flowers bloom in succession from late May into early July. Arching, iris-like, dark green leaves up 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 stems of spiderworts are cut, a viscous stem secretion is released which becomes 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 soil conditions except where it is not well drained.  It will spread and self seed where happy and may give a second later flush of flowers if it is cut back after the first flowering to encourage new growth.
