Zebrina pendula 10°C/50°F; Mexico

This nice trailing plant often known by the same common name as the tradescantia, requires the same treatment and airy conditions; it is equally easy to manage.

Similarly, it is also a superb plant when seen in a hanging basket.

When given just a little more than the passing glance normally given to the tradescantia tribe, it will be found that the zebrina is a superbly-coloured plant with vivid purple to the undersides of leaves with rich green, purple and silver colouring to the upper surface. A perfectly grown plant in a hanging basket placed on a pedestal where it can be admired from all angles.
