Bluejacket or Ohio Spiderwort

This is an interesting, attractive plant, growing close to the canal shore. I’ve only seen three plants in one area, which makes me wonder if this is a remnant from a cottage garden.

I purchased two larger plants from Amanda’s Garden a few weeks ago, and they are doing well in my garden area close to the canal.  They are in full flower right now.

You can read more about them here.


The plant occasionally goes by the rather repulsive name of Snotweed, which is a shame really, because I think it’s very pretty.

I live in Fairport, and my home is at The Oxbow section of The Erie Canal. I fish, have a pontoon boat and like messing in boats. (see I'm retired and enjoy every day living here with my wife Carol and our two dogs.
