Artist's Description

Spiderworts can be compared to daylilies and dayflowers-each blossom lasts only one day. The common name refers to the many glistening hairs on the sepals and the buds. They resemble a spider’s nest of webs, especially when covered with dew (“wort” is an old English word for plant).

Spiderworts are weak-stemmed plants that grow up to 1 foot long. They produce a watery juice and have folded, straplike leaves. The 3-petaled flowers, opening at dawn and fading by mid-afternoon, are surrounded by many buds.

Tradescantia virginiana is the original species and is still found in many old country gardens. The flowers are usually 1 inch wide, violet-purple, and often very floppy.

Photographed in my gardens in Spring Glen, New York, USA. Composed in Photoshop with layers, adjustments, filters, and original textures.
