Virginia spiderwort, or Tradescantia virginiana, is making its debut! The large and dainty perennial can grow up to 3 feet tall. It has long, bright-green, narrow leaves and a thick clump of slender, branched stalks. Groups of blue or purplish, three-petaled flowers adorn the top of the plant. Spiderwort flowers open only in the morning and close by mid-day, then their petals wilt and turn into a jelly-like fluid. The flowers only open for one day, so make sure to be on the lookout. The name spiderwort comes from the angular leaf arrangement that resembles a squatting spider!
