hio Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis) can be found growing on the south side of road ditches and in medium to dry prairies and meadows. It's also a very attractive addition to any garden and quite easy to grow from seed. Its unusual foliage and tendency to bloom in the morning sun and close from mid-day heat and sun make this an attractive addition wherever it is found.
A stand of these long-blooming Spiderworts can be in bloom from May through July. Seeds germinate nicely with a fall planting, or following a four-month period (approximately 120 days) of moist-cold stratification. The Spiderworts are native throughout the country with Ohio Spiderwort being the most widespread, and most are very adaptable tolerating sand, clay and other tough sites.
