Concord Grape’ is delightful with its deep, rich purple flowers and prominent yellow stamens. This American hybrid selection has beautiful narrow foliage in a unique frosty-blue shade, forming a compact mound that is studded with a summer-long display of small, triangular flowers. This is a prolific bloomer all summer if old blooms are removed. Trim back in midsummer if plants get scruffy. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Spiderworts appreciate a moist, rich soil, and will even tolerate wet sites beside a stream or pond. Tradescantia ‘Concord Grape’ is attractive to butterflies. This is truly an outstanding garden plant.
This is a compact spiderwort with a long bloom period that is great in rock gardens, flowerbed borders, open woodland gardens, wild gardens, naturalized areas or moist areas along streams or ponds.
