Wow! Such a beautiful, elegant plant! We absolutely love the full shape and wonderful foliage of the Tradescantia Fluminensis!


Tradescantia Fluminensis is a species of spiderwort native to South America, also known as the wandering Dude becuse it grows rapidly and will urban wild any space. The small leaves have a shiny appearance, the underside of a leaf is purple in colour and new leaves appear purple at first, then turn green.


It looks beautiful in a hanging basket or container they grow and hang over the sides


It’s a classic 70s houseplant making a huge comeback - for good reason, its stunning easy-care nature makes it hard not to love! 


The Tradescantia Fluminensis has smaller, more delicate leaves than the Tradescantia albiflo
