Tradescantia ‘Red Grape’ is one of my favorite plants that I planted in my parents’ yard. It is very tough and there are several native species of Tradescantia or spiderwort in Kansas. My favorite of the Kansas species is Tharp’s spiderwort.
I really love this shade of reddish-purple.
Sunday, when I took these pictures, it had just rained. Water droplets on the flowers and foliage of this spiderwort look really cool!
