More About Ohio Spiderwort

Commonly found in prairies, wood margins, meadows, along roadsides, or in waste areas, the Ohio Spiderwort is a clump-forming herbaceous perennial which grows 3' tall with blue-green, arching, grass-like leaves. This fairly long blooming perennial is ideal for borders, naturalized areas, meadows or open spaces within the woodland garden. Prefers moist, acidic, sandy soil, but also grows well in average well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates part shade well, but bloom may be less profuse. Blooms from late May into early July.
