The three-petaled rose to purple blooms of this wildflower only last for a day each, but the tight clusters of buds successively bloom from late May into early July. The iris-like, arching green leaves fold lengthwise from which the flower bedecked stems arise. When these stems are cut, a sticky secretion is released which becomes threadlike and silky upon hardening. The common name, 'spiderwort' comes from the nature of this web-like hardened secretion, though the beauty of this wildflower really deserves something more becoming!
