A bizarre Tradescantia relative from high altitude in Mexico with amazing purple/brown marked leaves. Violet flowers over an exceptionally long season in summer and autumn. Completely deciduous, this spreads to form a wide mat in one season from a perennial base. Gently seeds itself around in a most pleasant manner. Sun, well drained soil. Proven very hardy over many many years here, even through 2009/2010 winters at -14c!
