Not a completely new variety, but brought a new lease of life. This Tradescantia has fairly succulent, large, broad, purple leaves with pink flowers emerging in summer.
Height x Spread / Trail
30 x 30 cm
June - October
Most frequently seen as a house plant, but we see no reason that it shouldn't be used in patio containers, or even in the border as often seen in the tropics.
Prefers full sun, or partial shade with free-draining soil or compost.
To keep this plant over winter it must be kept in a frost free area.
