Getting too big.

akarstetter116June 24, 2014

I'm trying to identify this plant so I can safely move it to a bigger area. The past couple years it just keeps spreading and has out grown the little space it's in. I really don't want to shock or kill it by my ignorance because it's so beautiful. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Well, we've lived in our house for 3 years now and it was smaller when we moved in. The previous owners have this little stone path that leads to the side of the house, which is useless, but we've left it because the spiderwort was in there so cozy. But it has started to spread to big for such a small space and I've really grown to like it. I'm going to move it to another area that it can grow a lot more.
