Tradescantia ohiensis, commonly known as Ohio Spiderwort, is a native, herbaceous perennial plant that is commonly found in meadows, prairies, and along roadsides in North America. It is known for its distinctive, three-petaled flowers that bloom in shades of blue, purple, and pink, and its long, narrow, blade-like leaves.

Ohio Spiderwort can grow up to 2-3 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide, with leaves that can reach up to a foot long. The leaves are long, narrow, and blade-like, with a deep green color that provides a strong contrast to the showy flowers that are produced in late spring to early summer. The flowers are three-petaled, with a bright, vibrant blue, purple, or pink color, and are produced in clusters along the stems of the plant.

In terms of habitat, Ohio Spiderwort is well-adapted to a variety of soil and moisture conditions and can be found in both dry and moist soils. It is also tolerant of drought and can grow in full sun to partial shade. It is a great addition to restoration and landscaping projects because it provides color early in the season, April - July.

Ohio Spiderwort gets its common name from the sticky, spider-like threads that are produced when the stems of the plant are broken. These threads are the result of a special type of tissue that is found in the stems of the plant and help to heal and protect the plant from damage.
