Spiderwort Plant Mix

Three Seasons of Color

Easy to grow, three-petaled flowers in clusters atop sword-shaped leaves. Outstanding mix of white with blue centers, red-purple, china blue, white and purple violet. 2-ft. plants require very little attention and bloom continuously all summer long into fall. Zones 3-9.
I'm gardening elsewhere.
