The spiderwort is a late spring wild flower. The local kind has blossoms that close a night and dangle down, suggesting spider legs.
But maybe it’s the long leaves that are often bent like spider legs. In either case, each individual plant is an architectural master piece.
The flowers have three petals. Unlike trilliums, I have never seen a four leaf variation . Another explanation for the spider name are the hairs around the anthers.
Maybe we should consult an expert. They seem to like these flowers, too.
