Spiderwort

Despite its ugly name, spiderwort is a lovely plant. The stems remind me of bamboo. It tolerates conditions from mostly shade to full sun. However, the blooms last longer in shady areas. I love the electric blue blossoms of the native variety (a gift from Tim). I purchased a second spiderwort from Home Depot, but have been disappointed with its lavendar flowers. (So disappointed, in fact, that I didn't take a picture!)

Very cool, I've been seeing those flowers in the woods around Atlanta recently and I was wondering what they were.

My camera ROCKS! I am very happy with it. I use the largest file size to photograph flowers and my yard.
It does have trouble focusing on Mr. Tibbs (because of all the hair?) and I've still got to find a good setting to catch the cats in action.

I have had so much trouble with spiderwort taking over my garden that I have exiled it from my garden.
