Tradescantia 'Red Cloud'
Common Name: Spiderwort.
Zone: (3) 4 to 9.
Full sun to full shade. Soil conditions should be moist in full sun. Plants will have nicer foliage, though perhaps fewer flowers, in partial to full shade.
Height: 15 to 18 inches tall, spread 18 to 24 inches.
Moderate growth, Herbaceous clump-forming perennial.
Triangular, rose-purple blossoms. Each 1-2 inch wide, 3-petaled flower only lasts for one day, but the plants have lots of buds, extending the bloom time up to eight weeks. The flowers are self-cleaning, so deadheading is not necessary.
Mature field grown plant shipped bare root.
