Growing uninvited with landscaping garden plants… very small, maybe 1/8″

    Small in the wild but tall when you give it great soil. Tradescantia virginiana L. Virginia spiderwort, Spider lily I have plenty to share; you dig. 678-937-0713

    We think alike. I don’t replant to many wildflowers that I find. I do keep most that grow on my property. I’ll also photograph any unidentified flower before moving or removing it. I have no degree in any of this and I hate latin but love the beauty of the natural outdoors. The flower photographs gives me a great subject to play with and the file keeps growing. Sent you an e-mail …

    At my house… It ain’t a weed until after I know what it is… And naturals get preference to stuff I plant. I hear too many stories about people killing off unknown plants… Simply because they either didn’t plant them, or didn’t recognize them when they came up…. If “weeding” the garden means pulling out pretties… You might want to redefine the term… If you plan to grow desirable natives. There are a lot of horror stories about those “landscape plants” that escaped into the wild, and crowded out the “weeds”.

    I did notice early on that is looked much like the Spiderwort* but the tiny size and leaf shape stopped me from making that call. I might call it that until if, by chance, I find it not so. *Spiderwort grows wild in abundance in the coastal area, including in my garden (for lack of a better word).

    Thanx for answering my input. No I don’t have any more photos of this one. It was where it didn’t belong and I had to remove it … that’s called weeding the garden. 🙂

    Beautiful… I want to say Commelinaceae… That orchid-like center of the flower gives me pause… Do you have other pics?
