Spiderwort by Kelly Poole. 6/8/13
Dew was covering most everything in the park this morning when I arrived at about 6:30. The spiderwort in bloom above the limestone wall on the upland trail was no exception. Although it seems to be relatively common in Iowa, if you are not a morning person, you may miss it. Spiderwort typically blooms a few hours early in the day with the petals closing as the day progresses (unless it is cloudy/overcast). I'm sure there are exceptions to this but it seems to be a good rule of thumb.
