Widow’s Tears

Widow’s tears

Widow’s tears, spiderwort, tradescantia, this is a wildflower native to North America that became a favorite garden flower. I remember it in the gardens of my older relatives when I was a child and I wonder if it was planted intentionally or it sidled over from the woods or pasture. It is still one of my favorites and I let it naturalize in several places in my garden.

  1. One of my favorites too, Bernadette. The bees love it and it is one of the few 3 petalled flowers.

      Some of those old-fashioned ones, I used to take them for granted, but I really think they are special. The color of this one, one of my favorites.
