Ohio Spiderwort (Tradescantia Ohiensis)
my bees are all over my spiderwort in the morning
Also called Railroad Iris.
It will grow just about anywhere with well drained soil and multiplies really well. What I have in my yard seems to do better with some evening shade. And yes, bees and butterflies love it.
Interesting -- I was told by a local beekeeper that spiderwort is an excellent choice in our area as well, though here, it's a part sun to full sun, and likes moist, but well-drained soil. It fills a nice spot between the early spring bonanza and the mid summer blooms.
