Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to 6 Lovely Water-Wise Perennials for High Altitudes
Western Spiderwort (Tradescantia occidentalis)Native to most of central North America, western spiderwort has blossoms that echo the color of the springtime sky. Although more drought tolerant than the common garden hybrids, western spiderwort features the same grass-like foliage and unique three-petaled flowers. Include it in your native perennial garden, meadow or mixed border. Flowers attract butterflies from late spring through early summer, and it's deer resistant. Plant in average to sandy soil.USDA zones: 5 to 8 Water requirement: LowLight requirement: Full sun to filtered shadeMature size: 1 foot to 1 1/2 feet tall and wideSeasonal interest: Late spring through early summerWhen to plant: Spring or fall
