Tradescantia ‘Sweet Kate’ Spiderwort
'Sweet Kate' has brilliant gold foliage that is outstanding even when viewed from a distance. To keep this light-colored foliage from scorching, afternoon shade and consistant moisture is recommended.
Sharply contrasting, triangular, violet-blue blossoms with sulphur-yellow stamens are produced in early to midsummer. Each 1-2 inch wide, 3-petaled flower only lasts for one day, but the plants have lots of buds, extending the bloom time up to eight weeks. The flowers are self-cleaning, so deadheading is not necessary.
