 Tradescantia sillamontana
Family: Commelinaceae
White Velvet, White Gossamer, Cobweb Spiderwort
Origin: Northeastern Mexico
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Fuzzy leaved spiderwort, appearing as if its leaves were covered with spiderwebs. Silver green leaves frosted with white fuzzy cobwebbing whorled around upright stems. Low growing and spreading, to 10-12" x 18", with striking magenta flowers in summer through autumn. Showy in containers or the garden. Unusual little plant for the rock garden, a pot or the top of a wall.

Found in the mountains of northern Mexico, they prefer sun and are easy growers, needing little water and generally thriving on.

Sun to light shade, well drained soils, water sparingly, donít overwater. This is a plant that enjoys neglect and mixes well with succulents.

Far hardier than appears, this overwinters at light freeze (zone 7B).
