A Dainty Dash of Purple

A Dainty Dash of Purple

It’s really a shame that such a lovely wildflower has such an unattractive name. It is a Spiderwort and the scientific name is Tradescantia. This particular species is Tradescantia Virginiana or Virginia Spiderwort. The colors can range from blue to purple and even occasionally white.

  1. The common name isn’t pretty but the flowers sure is!

    It may not have a pretty name, but it is very pretty.. Kind of makes me think of the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” so, guess we shouldn’t judge a flower by its name.. 🙂
