Vigorous and clump forming with bright white flowers from June to September. Not often offered in the UK, but quite hardy.
White version of the more common Blue Spiderwort. Each flower lasts just a day, but more follow to replace them. A real gem.
Works well in the border, on-masse as ground cover, or planted within a wildflower meadow scheme.
The foliage of these plants is primarily on their flowering stems, so at certain times of the year, you may receive plants with little or no foliage. This is completely normal and nothing to worry about.
Myth and Folklore
An infusion of the plant was used by Keres people as a strengthener for weakened tuberculosis patients. The Ramah Navajo give an infusion to livestock as an aphrodisiac.
