Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Fuzzy' (Wandering Jew Plant)

Houseplant lovers rejoice!  'Purple Fuzzy' is an evergreen variety of Tradescantia pallida which is a native plant in northeast Mexico.  The stems and ovate leaves vary from a purple casted green in shade to a bright purple in full sun.  We recommend growing in a very sunny window or greenhouse for best color.  However, they will grow beautifully in partial shade and still produce a nice purple hue.  The leaves have a fuzzy texture to them that adds an element of fun to the beautiful nature of this plant.  An easy to care for houseplant that is a good choice for beginner gardeners and lives for years.  Also, a neat plant to live outside during the warm months and then bring in for the winter.
