Ohio Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis) is a seasonal plant with purple flowers late spring into summer. They prefer moist to mesic soil in sun to part sun where they grow up to 2 feet tall. They are a good choice for slopes and basins. Companion plants include Palm Sedge (Carex muskigemensis) and White Turtlehead (Chelone glabra).
Plants may need staking in rich soils, where they tend to flop while in bloom. Can be an aggressive plant in ideal growing conditions.
