What's the Name of This Bloom? (Spiderwort)

I planted an new garden last fall, and this spring some new flowers have came up. I am really very good with types of plants but this one I just can't find a name. Does anyone know the name of this bloom? Thanks.

That's spiderwort, also called widow's tears. It's native, and can be invasive where the soil is rich and moist, but it blooms all summer.

Your plant is a spiderwort. They are usually blue or purple. Supposedly that blue fuzzy stuff turns pink if the air gets polluted.

Doesn't look at all like the Spiderwart that grows in Texas, which is absolutely an endangered species, according to the nature hike guides in East Texas.

The one here is short and deep blue, with more uniformity in the three blooms.
