Volunteer #spiderwort in the #petitelakerockgarden seems to be a deeper #purple than the parent plant #zone5 #zone5b

Very pretty! I really like these plants but can't seem to get them to grow here even though I see them in other people's gardens. 🙁

This is one tough plant that never gives up. Planted in 2011 as a transplant from Witchita State University. Update: it's mid July and still blooming. #zone5 #zone5b #petitelakeshedgarden

Thank you very much for the offer, @petitelake ! I actually have some of these plants, and I put yours on my wishlist to remind me of the name once I get a picture of mine. :)
