|Our three little Tradescantia plants on the bank.|
This plant is related to the plant you may know as Wandering Jew or Zebrina.
I don't know if the previous owner, who was quite a gardener, planted this or perhaps some bird just happened to drop some seeds in the bank. Whatever, I look forward to this beautiful little blue flower blooming each year. Spiderworts can easily be propagated with cuttings which should be taken in the spring or early summer. Each year I think about taking cuttings and then forget, but this year I'm going to remember.
p.s. I'm back from the Farmer's Market and here is the hanging basket of Zebrina I found.
