Tradescantia pallida ‘Pink Stripes’

Purple Misery with variegated leaves

This cultivar is a DECO-Style® selection with a much more colorful variegation than the cultivar ‘Variegata’. The leaves of this companion plant, tinted dark purple and brilliant pink, measure 7 to 15 cm in length. Although this beautiful exotic tolerates shade, bright light intensifies its coloring. Placed at the edge of a flowerbed, its contrasting effects are magnificent. The plant can reach 15 to 20 cm in height and 20 to 30 cm in spread. Give it compost at planting and it will give you hours of summer pleasure.
