Description: Introduce the captivating beauty of Tradescantia Zebrina to your garden with its unique characteristics and vibrant colors. This trailing plant serves as an excellent groundcover, reaching a height of 6-12 inches. Its succulent stems bear ovate to lanceolate leaves that elegantly clasp the stem.

The upper leaf surface of Tradescantia Zebrina showcases a mesmerizing blend of green and purple, adorned with two wide, silvery-white stripes. Meanwhile, the lower leaf surface features a deep magenta hue, adding further intrigue to its appearance. Upon closer observation, you’ll notice delicate hairs along the leaf margins, creating an enchanting texture. In bright light, the surfaces of the leaves seem to glisten and sparkle, delighting the eye.

For optimal color intensity, it is recommended to provide Tradescantia Zebrina with full sun; however, in southern locations, be mindful of excessive sun exposure as it may cause the colors to fade.
