Tradescantia ohiensis (Smooth Spiderwort) is not only native but also edible AND medicinal AND is a pollinator plant 🥳 This is a 4 for 1 bonus plant to have in your yard. Tradescantia ohiensis grows 2-3 feet high and 2 foot wide. The young stems, leaves and flowers can be eaten raw and have a mucilage similar to okra. Mature leaves can be cooked. The mucilage in the leaves is good for crushing and applying to insect bites and has a similar effect to aloe vera applications. The blue/purple flowers which range in color from deep purple to light bluish, attract insects and butterflies to the garden. We're proud to offer these Louisiana natives for only $7 each! Plant in full sun for best blooming, however, Tradescantia ohiensis will tolerate part sun.
