Tradescantia 'Purple Wandering Jew'

A very vivacious houseplant, this purple variety of wandering jew brings bold color to the container planting.  This spreading beauty has what looks like brush-stroked leaves that change with light.  High intensity light causes more purple coloration with low light levels giving the more silver look.  Either way both color variations make for a wild addition to the mixed container or stand-alone planting.  Wandering jew houseplants are easy to maintain with occasional trimming and fertilizing needed.  Highly recommended for the beginner.
