What a curious plant! They open in the shade of the day, and closes in bright sunlight!
- Like Daylillies and Day flowers, each blossom lasts only one day.
- The common name refers to the numerous hairs on its sepals and buds. They look like a spider's nest of webs, especially when covered in dew.
- "wort" is an archaic word for plant.
I love these plants and their "alien-like" appearance. Their strange habits. The fact that they are perennials pleases me to no end. I can expect to behold their wonder, year after year.
