SpiderwortRegular price $15.99
Lovely little blue or purple three-petaled flowers of spiderwort will put a smile on your face when they open in the early morning in summer. They last one day only but will keep coming for almost six weeks. The flowers are surrounded by grassy arching green leaves that grow tall above the blooms. Spiderworts are native to North America, where they grow wild. They are extremely easy to care for as long as you plant them in rich, moist, well-draining slightly acidic soil. Grow them in partial shade, but they will thrive in a sunny location if the soil is consistently moist.
