Summer has begun, and the colourful blooms of Widow's Tears arrive to add fragrance and wild beauty to your garden. Whether planted in stylish pots, used as ground cover, or delicately placed along the borders of your garden, their lilac, blue, white or blue-violet hues create a fantastical background that catches your eye as they dance in the summer breeze. Butterflies will fill your garden, each hoping for a chance to embrace the gorgeous hues and sweet scents that announce that summer has officially arrived.

Creating the perfect summer garden starts with a bit of planning, and widow's tears flowers are versatile enough to make it easy for you to enjoy their vibrant blooms in several different ways. They thrive in pots, along woodland areas and in flower beds, as long as they're provided well-drained soil. Many grow to heights of 16 inches, and some, like widow's tears Leonora, will grow as high as 28 inches. These adaptable beauties thrive in a variety of locations, from areas of full to partial sun to areas of light shade. These colourful perennials grow best in zones 3 to 9. Widow's tears plants bloom from early summer well into fall.

Also known as Virginia spiderwort, widow's tears (Tradescantia virginiana) are native to North America and are a delightful addition to woodland, native and wildflower gardens. With a light, delicate fragrance and a spreading habit, they make a lovely ground cover beneath trees, along landscape edges and in woodland settings. Breathe life into your garden this summer with beautiful violet and double blue widow's tears. Fill planters and pots with these cheery flowers to display in your front windows. An attractive mixture of these perennials can blanket your flower beds as well, creating an oasis for butterflies. Get ready for summer now with these charming blooms.
