Can anybody tell me what kind of flowers these are. They spread all threw my hostas and now my wildflowers. I picked some and put them in water and they starred to sprout. And now I'm getting blooms. I'll try to send some pics.

    Similar to American Vetch but not sure that is what it is. Hopefully some of our experienced gardeners can help!

    You should have a Cooperative Extensive Service, They should be able to tell you what it is and how to care for them.

    Good luck!

    Wandering Jew- flowers are purple or wnite. Cutting will root easily in water or any potting soil that maintain moisture.

    Wandering Jew, Tradescantia
    Fluminensis, it is a member of the spiderwort family and can spread rapidly in the right conditions.

      Thanks Ju An it sure is spreading. But the flowers are very pretty. And they look nice in my little containers. That I recycled. Have a great DAY

    Patti, I had a vine with little purple flowers that I actually brought some in the house. Our landscaper later notified us that we had Nightshade growing in our forsythia bush. He said it is a stubborn vine and sometimes poisonous. If this vine has red or orange berries come Fall, then you might have nightshade.

      Well last year I didn't have any berries. It's just this year that they seem to be spreading all over. Thank You so much for the reply. I appreciate it.
