Beautiful blue-violet blossoms with tufted yellow stamens catch your eye in back borders and wildflower gardens alike! Though each 1½–2" wide, three-petalled flower only lasts for a day, the vigorous plants have a lot of buds, extending the bloom time from summer to frost. The flowers are also self-cleaning, so deadheading is not necessary.Tradescantia x andersonia hybrid
