Tradescantia pallida. (Purple Heart)
'Purpurea' is a trailing evergreen perennial to 20cm in height with purple leaves 8-15cm in length, bright purple beneath, and terminal bright pink, 3-petalled flowers.
It has a trailing habit and looks fantastic as both an indoor or outdoor plant. Hardiness rating H3 (hardy to in mild areas down to minus 5) elsewhere can brought grown indoors. Personally we grow these as both indoor and outdoor plants. The leaf colour gives a fantastic combination with glossy green leaves. Looking striking when combined with Epiphyllum or Geraniums just to name a couple.
Year round colour and interest.
Requires full sun or part shade in free draining soil. Can tolerate periods of drought.
Comes in a 9cm pot
