Description

This American hybrid selection has beautiful narrow foliage in a unique steel-blue shade, forming a compact mound that is studded with a summer-long display of small, triangular flowers in a rich violet-purple shade. Flowering will continue all summer if old blooms are removed. Spiderworts appreciate a moist, rich soil, and will even tolerate wet sites beside a stream or pond. Trim back in midsummer if plants get scruffy. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Attractive to butterflies.
