These are all the different Tradescantias in the garden


Spiderworth - Tradescantia_andersonia


Summer to Winter

Back to Plant list

This hardy perennial flowers all summer long producing its purple flowers. It does not mind shade, but prefers good light. It spreads quite readily and reaches a height of about 18 inches(50cm). I also grow it in a pot with Oxalis when the pink of the Oxalis contrasts well with the purple of the Spiderworth. There are several other colours and shades to choose from in this species and several other Tradiscantia which look very different.
