Spiderwort Growing and Maintenance Tips

Prune back to the ground after flowering to encourage fresh, new growth and a possible rebloom. Plant in an average to moist, well-drained soil, in partial shade. This perennial tolerates both full sun and full shade. Consistent moisture is a must in full sun to prevent leaf scorch, whereas fewer flowers may develop in dense shade.
