Colorful spiderwort (tradescantia virginiana), also known as spider lily or lady’s tears, is decorating Bison Meadow with vivid purple flowers. The showy blooms, up to two inches across, last only about one day each, with a new flowers opening in succession every day for several weeks.
Spiderwort attracts birds, butterflies, and bees, especially native bees and bumblebees. New shoots of the long narrow bright-green leaves are edible, cooked like asparagus or bamboo shoots. Learn More
