What’s in Bloom?

“Sweet Kate” Spiderwort

This is one of the many new plants installed in the woodland garden. Its purple flowers and chartreuse foliage are a knockout. A plant breeder named this cultivar “Sweet Kate”. Our garden designer selected it as a nod to Katharine Hepburn and its beauty alongside other spring bloomers.  The plant’s common name is Spiderwort and the official latin name is Tradescantia Virginiana, a native species.
