I love Tradescantia ‘Red Grape’

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!

  1. Wowee is right;-) It’s a lovely one! I have some planted (got them recently from a blogging friend when we visited for the first time!) and it’s my first year having them. Yours is a completely different variety than I’ve heard of. Now I’m going to be on the lookout! I see your feed is working at Blotanical now…thanks for faving my blog and letting me know!
