A rarely offered plant related to the Tradescantia. Large gently green and white variegated leaves adorn long trailing stems. Small fragrant white flowers may appear. A lovely house plant, needing a bit of space to show off its habit to best effect.


We have to cut our Tradescantias (and related Callisias) back on a regular basis in the summer to keep them compact otherwise they are prone to damage during transit. You may receive plants which have recently been cut back this will not harm them at all and they will quickly grow away again
