Spiderwort, Last Picture, I Promise

I do love spiderworts this year, but wanted to point out to others that it is definitely a morning flower. As the sun comes up, it opens its flowers and is quite nice for a good part of the day.

However, once the sun heats up in the afternoon, the flowers close up and by evening you have a plant that looks like this.

But come morning, the flowers will all open again. This is definitely not a flower for an evening or night garden.

In the Tampa bay area of Florida this is a pesky weed which is very difficult to control.
