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.
