Woodland spiderwort is a gorgeous flower for shaded areas. The pink or purplish flowers appear in spring, and as the weather heats up, the plant goes dormant--usually in June. Plant with celandine poppy, wild sweet William, and oak sedge, or other plants that retain their foliage while woodland spiderwort is dormant. 

Uses: native bees, shaded areas, butterflies
Bloom time: April - May

Height: 6 - 12 inches
Space: 10 - 16 inches
