USE MULCH - REPEAT: USE MULCH

About Me Getting Started
Comments about High Country Gardens Tradescantia sillamontana:
These weren't happy campers when I first planted them....several brown leaves. However, once I added Yum Yum Mix and Mineral Boost to the soil and added a heavy layer of wood chip mulch according to High Garden's advice for arid climates, they perked up within days. Take High Gardens' advice and use Yum Yum Mix and Mineral Boost! They have saved my droopy newly planted plants. I think there is some "plant shock" when plants get newly planted in foreign soil and they droop.....but Yum Yum & Mineral Boost quickly makes plants happy again and off to a good start within days.....These seem to be happy in direct sunlight.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Didn't live to welcome spring!

Rabbits couldn't resist it.
from Las Vegas NV
The plant was beautiful and a really nice size when I received it but rabbits reduced it to nothing within a few days. Rabbits also occasionally eat my purple heart plants which are related to this plant, but rabbits never do more than a little damage to the purple heart. I figured this fuzzy species would be better than purple heart but the rabbits like it better, it seems. If I were to grow it again, it would be in a pot where rabbits couldn't reach it. I didn't have the plant long enough to know how it would do in the summer heat.
Merchant response: Hi Ron!We are so shocked to hear the rabbits ate your Spiderwort! They must've been real hungry when they saw your plant. We do sincerely apologize for the trouble you have had. We sincerely appreciate the feedback. We strongly encourage you to contact us with any feedback regarding our perennials as it is very helpful to understand how our products perform in every region. We hope that you'll give this Spiderwort another chance in the containers as you stated. Happy Gardening!
