Concord Grape Spiderwort
Small Dark Purple Blooms
The Spiderwort 'Concord Grape', Tradescantia ‘Concord Grape’, has dark bluish-green foliage with purple flowers.
The flowers open for one day but new blooms appear from June to October. With a plant height of 18” and a spread of 18-24”, it is one that should not be missed.
The contrast of the flower color and foliage make it a definite eye catcher. The foliage of spiderworts looks very much alike the foliage of a daylily, especially when it is first emerging.
Deadhead after the first flowering to prolong its blooming time.
Tradescantia ‘Concord Grape’ should be planted in a sunny area. It will tolerate some morning shade with well-drained soil.
It will accept damp soil but should not be over watered.
‘Concord Grape’ mixes beautifully with wild and naturalistic woodlands, in any perennial bed or as a border plant and attracts butterflies.
Try ‘Concord Grape’ with Geranium ‘Johnson’s Blue’ or Alchemilla ‘Lady’s Mantle’ for color contrasts. Clumps may be divided in early spring.
