Spiderwort - Shimmer Mixed

The Spiderwort Shimmer Mixed, 'Tradescantia andersoniana', has compact and upright green foliage with large pink, lilac, blue, rose, mauve and occasional white flowers. The flowers open for one day but new blooms appear from June to October.


With a plant height of 30” and a spread of 24-36”, it is one that should not be missed. The contrast of the flower color and foliage make it a definite eye catcher. Deadhead after the first flowering to prolong its blooming time.


‘Shimmer Mixed’ is easy to grow and a trouble-free perennial with grassy-looking deep green leaves. The three petaled 1 to 3 inch flowers are formed in large clusters, and although individual flowers last only a day, plants are seldom out of bloom in summer.


Tradescantia ‘Shimmer Mixed’ should be planted in a sunny area, but it will tolerate some morning shade with well-drained soil; should not be over watered.


‘Shimmer Mixed’ mixes beautifully with wild and naturalistic woodlands, in any perennial bed or as a border plant and attracts butterflies. To create a colorful area, mix ‘Shimmer Mixed’ with Geranium ‘Johnson’s Blue’ or Alchemilla ‘Lady’s Mantle’. PPAF
