Snowcap’ is a long blooming, clump-forming perennial that will tolerate full sun, shade to semi-shade. This Spiderwort has 1-2 in. wide white triangular snow-white flowers with fuzzy stamens tipped with golden yellow pollen. Numerous buds form in each cluster, but individual flowers open up only a few at a time, each for only one day, blooming in succession from late May into July. Arching, iris-like, dark green leaves are folded lengthwise forming a groove. Prefers moist, well-drained soil, the wetter the soil is the more sun it can tolerate. These will make nice clumps in a few years that can easily be divided. In the right conditions this plant can bloom up to 8 weeks.
An interesting and long-blooming perennial for open woodland gardens, wild gardens, naturalized areas or in moist areas along ponds or streams. Also can be grown in borders, but mid-summer foliage decline is a potential disincentive for a prominent placement.
