Description How to Grow Delivery

In the running for Chelsea Plant of the Year 2023, this star candidate sets a new standard for hardy Tradescantia. With more and larger flowers in each umbel, plus an impressively long flowering period, Tradescantia 'JS® Brainstorm' is sure to garner attention.

Blooming for two months longer than other varieties, Tradescantia 'JS® Brainstorm' goes on pumping out blooms from June to November – delivering an astonishing six months of flower. Dark purple buds open to large magenta-purple flowers with contrasting golden anthers that stand out beautifully against the vibrant petals. The flowers are nestled amongst long, sword-shaped evergreen leaves with harmonising purple tints. With each flower head packed with more flowers, Tradescantia 'JS® Brainstorm' is guaranteed to deliver a big splash of colour for months on end. Height: 50cm (20in). Spread: 40cm (16in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
