Ohio Spiderwort – Tradescantia ohiensis

Plant Family: Commelinaceae – Spiderwort family

Ohio Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis) is an easy to grow native plant for the garden. Plants I transplanted into my garden have spread by seed, into cracks in the neighbors driveway and produced good plants.  Perhaps that is not what most look for in a garden flower, but its wonderful three petaled, blue flowers make it fine by me.
