Purple Silver

Tradescantia Purple Silver, commonly called Wandering Jew, also known as Zebrina, is a very popular house plant of the spiderwort family. Prized for its foliage, the purple and silver stripes are striking and the plant is super easy to grow. Best used in hanging baskets and containers with enough room for trailing. Place your planting in bright indirect light avoiding direct sun as it will burn the foliage.
