Lilac Tradescantia has beautifully variegated foliage in striped shades of green, white and lilac-pink. This Wandering Jew relative is equally easy to grow and propagate. Lilac Tradescantia excels in containers and trails enough to be grown in a hanging basket or can be used as a foliage accent in a shade combination planter or even as an annual ground cover. Provide bright light if grown indoors for the best variegation. Keep the soil evenly moist, but never too wet. Sold in a 4.5″ Pot 1.37 Pt. (648 ml.).
