Tradescantia 'Concord Grape'
Triangular, concord grape blossoms with sulphur yellow stamens. Each 1.5 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.
This cultivar has frosted blue-green foliage which remains compact, making it attractive both in bloom and out.

Spiderwort Growing and Maintenance Tips
Tradescantia is adaptable to many types of soil as long as it is moist and well-drained. It will grow in any amount of sunlight, from full sun to full shade. In full sun, plants must be kept moist to prevent scorching. Plants will have nicer foliage, though perhaps fewer flowers, in partial to full shade. After flowering declines, cut plants all the way back. This will encourage new growth and a second round of bloom.
