Tradescantia (Spiderwort)

A neighbor friend gave me a couple of cuttings of their Spiderwort. It has multiplied threefold! It is a wonderful shade of blue and in the morning when it blooms a sight to see! The blooms close up when the sun is out. On cloudy days the blooms are bluer than blue the entire day.

Lucky you. It's a thug, but it blooms freely while we're waiting for something else. I use it as a tall edging at the back of island beds and dig it out from the inside.

Cut it to the ground when it starts to look seedy, it doesn't mind at all.

Lovely! Nice strappy foliage too. How does yours do on water?
