bears deep reddish purple flowers, both on 20 inch stems.
Bumblebees pollinate many plants
Species of Tradescantia appear on lists of both edible and poisonous plants. Minor skin irritations have resulted in some people from contact with the plant. Although the leaves and flowers have been reported edible, caution is advised before ingesting any wild plant. About 46 species of bumblebees are native to North America, 21 in the eastern United States. Six of these have been recorded in coastal Virginia three are very common and three are in declining populations.
Spiderworts are often found in abandoned gardens along with classics like lilacs and shrub roses. Each flower lasts Nike Vapormax Plus Khaki
Unless acquired from a wildflower nursery, the plants sold today are usually a series of hybrids, which are sold at local garden centers. Today, Hamilton said, there are more than 30 cultivars:
The species name refers to its favorite plant for nectar and pollen, Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis). Brown belted bumblebee (B. grisecollis) is also common in the Hampton Roads region, particularly in urban areas. The two spotted bumblebee (B. bimaculatus) has a long tongue that gathers nectar from mints; coloration is very similar to the brown belted, Hamilton said.
Cap has pure white flowers.
The easy grow plants tolerate full sun, adapt to part sun, and thrive in dry to moist soil. They look good as border plants, and stand out when planted against backdrops like a wall. In the wild, spiderwort inhabits dry upland forests, rocky open woods and wood edges, so providing the plant with a similar habitat makes it happy in the home garden, Hamilton says. The plant can become aggressive, but thinning and pulling unwanted seedlings keeps it under control.
on the stamens have long been used in botany classes, because the flow of protoplasm can be viewed through a microscope. These hairs give the plant the common name 'wort,' being the old England word for plant. Also, the sap from the broken stem forms filaments like a spider's web or the angular leaf arrangement suggests a squatting Nike Air Vapormax Tn Hybrid
Three species of Tradescantia occur throughout much of eastern North America. In Virginia, T. virginiana is found in counties west of Richmond, and southeast of Tidewater; T. Nike Vapormax Strap Black ohiensis grows in Virginia Beach and the western mountainous counties; T. subaspera has been located in the southwestern counties, according to Hamilton. These three species differ in the length and appearance of the leaves and flower color. Spiderwort ranges from New England to Georgia, Minnesota and Missouri.

a day, but new blossoms continually appear. Old blooms do not fall to the ground, they seem to melt off the plant, due to enzyme activity, says Hamilton. The three petals are typically shades of purple and blue, but rose, pink and white cultivars are offered by today's nursery trade. Propagation is by division or seed. Flowering happens April July.
Kathy Van Mullekom: pollinate many plants, including native spiderwort; but beware the not so nice perillaToday, for the monthly introduction to an insect, native plant and invasive plant, you meet the nice native plant spiderwort and the not so nice perilla. You'll also meet the beneficial bumblebee. Tradescant's son traveled to Virginia in the 1630s, and sent spiderwort back to England where it became part of English cottage gardens.
"Spiderwort can be a good indicator of environmental problems since a high sensitivity to pollution and radiation causes it to mutate quickly," says Hamilton, a retired biology teacher.
The common Eastern bumblebee (Bombus impatiens) frequents the Atlantic Coast, foraging farms, suburbs and urban areas.
