The bright blue flowers of Ohio Spiderwort bloom for an extended period from late spring into midsummer. The blue-green grass-like foliage and upright form are attractive in any garden or meadow. The lovely blooms are ephemeral – opening for only a day and only in the morning. The florets close during bright sunny afternoons and a new crop appears the next day.
