More compact and longer blooming than most Tradescantia, 'Sweet Kate' creates a high contrast, high impact color combination with clusters of 3-petaled, yellow-stamened, violet-blue flowers appearing even more vibrant set against a complementary background of bright chartreuse foliage. The arching, iris-like leaves will have the best color when planted in full sun.

A hardy, clump-forming mound, virtually pest and disease free, spider wort will grow just about anywhere that has fertile, well-drained soil, including woodland gardens, wild gardens, naturalized areas, water edges, cottage gardens, and rock gardens. It makes a great border. After the bloom cycle, cut back hard to promote regrowth and another bloom cycle in fall.
