Small Dark-Purple Blooms
The Spiderwort ‘Concord Grape’, Tradescantia ‘Concord Grape’, has dark bluish-green foliage with purple flowers.
While the flowers open for one day, but new blooms appear from June to October. Plus, the contrast of the flower color and foliage make it a definite eye catcher! The foliage of Spiderworts looks very much alike the foliage of a Daylily, especially when it is first emerging.
Tradescantia ‘Concord Grape’ should be planted in a sunny area. It will tolerate some morning shade with well-drained soil. It will accept damp soil but should not be over watered. Deadhead after the first flowering to prolong its blooming time.
‘Concord Grape’ mixes beautifully with wild and naturalistic woodlands, in any perennial bed or as a border plant and attracts butterflies.
Try ‘Concord Grape’ with Geranium ‘Johnson’s Blue’ or Alchemilla ‘Lady’s Mantle’ for color contrasts. Clumps may be divided in early spring.
