hairyflower spiderwort, Tradescantia hirsutiflora
Hairyflower spiderwort seemed to be in the wrong place. None of my Florida sources have this one anywhere south of the western panhandle. Then comes the right volume of Flora of North America, and they mention that it has been found in the central panhandle - maybe. Turns out the experts aren't sure how to classify spiderworts either. In any case this is still the prettiest spiderwort I've ever found. Depending on how you classify this group of spiderworts, hairyflower could be in AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MO, MS, OK, or TX. Polk CO FL, 3/17/16. Dayflower family, Commelinaceae.
