Tradescantia ohiensis (Ohio Spiderwort) [25 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they need a period of chilling of about 4 months before sprouting. The easiest approach is to sow current-year seeds in summer, fall, or early winter and set the pot outdoors to germinate whenever conditions are right the next spring. If sowing in January or later, you could try giving the pot an artificial chilling period.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Ohio spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis), also known as bluejacket, grows 2 to 4 feet tall, with blue to purplish blue, flat-faced flowers from late spring to early or midsummer. They open in early morning and usually close by early afternoon. To be honest, I’ve never been a big fan of spiderworts in the garden, because they can sprawly and smother more delicate companions. Growing Ohio spiderwort in my meadow has shown me that spiderworts can be lovely in a naturalistic setting among sturdy perennials and grasses. Native to much of the eastern half of North America, this species can adapt to pretty much any garden conditions: sun to shade, moist soil to dry. Perennial; Zones 4 or 5 to 9.

Collected in mid to late July 2023. At least 25 seeds. Unknown ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
