Spiderwort Leaf
Spiderworts are plants belonging to the genus Tradescantia, herbaceous flowering plants that can be found growing in moist tropical to subtemperate habitats around the world. In the North American prairie states, many of these plants are known as “cow slobber” because of the gooey, stringy sap they produce. When stretched out, the sap can also resemble strands of a spider’s web, which probably gave rise to the “spiderwort” name.
