Description from Possibility Place: Ohio Spiderwort is a very common plant throughout Illinois.  It can grow in nearly all conditions, but prefers drier soils and full sun.  Its flowers are a striking, deep violet, and they bloom late spring to early summer for 1-2 months.  Because each plant rarely has more than one flower in bloom at a time, this plant has its best displays when planted in groups.  Flowering stalks tend to flop over after blooming.  Cutting stems back can encourage fall blooms under the right conditions.
