Overview

Tradescantia tharpii is often better known as Tharp Spiderwort or Shortstem Spiderwort. It is a pretty perennial plant from the Commelinaceae family. Makes a great, low-maintenance houseplant with an attractive trailing habit that suits placement in hanging containers. Plants in the genus Tradescantia have until recently been commonly known as ‘Wandering Jew’. This name is no longer used by the horticultural world due to its historical use in supporting antisemitic stereotypes.
