Description How to Grow Delivery

Tradescantia is one of the few trailing plants with purple foliage and this one excels, with deeper purple foliage than other varieties, each leaf painted with a muted silvery green stripe. Like other tradescantias, ‘Purple Passion’ has a magical sparkle to its leaves which glisten when they catch the light. ‘Purple Passion’ associates beautifully with green-leaved trailing houseplants with contrasting textures such as Dischidia or Senecio.
