Tradescantia ‘Red Grape’


Spiderwort

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.520.680


This American hybrid selection has narrow grassy foliage, forming a compact mound studded with a summer-long display of small triangular dusky wine-red flowers, over grey-green leaves. 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.
