(syn: Tradescantia 'Blue and Gold') This UK imported spiderwort was discovered in the garden of Mrs. Stevens of Rusthall, Kent, and named after her blond-haired daughter, Kate Stevens. The brilliant golden foliage (brightest in full sun) of Tradescantia 'Sweet Kate' is highlighted with a procession of deep blue flowers from late spring until fall. If flowering slows, behead Tradescantia 'Sweet Kate'...and it, just like an alien, will start to regrow and flower all over again. Each plant of Tradescantia 'Sweet Kate' is a true masterpiece!
