|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The spiderwort plant blooms from June through August and was once thought to be a cure for spider bites, hence its name. It can be found from southern Canada all the way down to Argentina. They are scrambling plants, growing to 30-60 cm (12–24 in) tall, and are commonly found individually or in clumps in wooded areas and fields. Their leaves are long, thin and blade-like. Their blossoms are generally pink, white or purple and have yellow stamens.|

I have heard so many stories about the origin of the spiderwort's name. Good capture! Sometimes their color is little 'bled' looking.
