Tradescantia spathacea is a stunning plant to brighten up your space, keep it in bright, indirect sunlight and allow it to dry out in between waterings. Tradescantia spathacea is a tender evergreen perennial with a compact, clump-forming habit with rosettes of semi-erect, fleshy lance-shaped, pink, white and green leaves which are purple on the underside. This attractive foliage plant produces white, 3-petalled flowers and is commonly known by many common names, including Boat Lily and Moses in the Cradle. 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.
