Purple Heart Plant
Tradescantia Pallida Queen, Purple Heart Plant, Purple Queen
Partial / Bright
Purple Heart Plant offers blade-shaped leaves in a standout shade of gleaming deep purple that meander around companions in containers, garden beds, and window boxes, adding eye-catching contrast. Small, tri-colored pink blooms come and go quickly throughout the summer, but you’ll want this superb mixer for its distinctive foliage form and color.
The fleshy foliage of Purple Queen is a particularly rich deep purple and their trailing habit make them exceptional plants for both hanging baskets, rockeries, and tropical borders.
Although tender, these plants make fantastic houseplants and thrive in both full sun and partial shade. This genus contains a number of widely-grown perennials but also a tender species, Tradescantia pallida. Its primary virtues are handsome foliage and an eagerness to colonize its immediate neighborhood by sending out leafy stems that root where they touch ground, quickly forming a lush mat.
Tradescantia is generally very easy to care and also one of those beautiful air purifiers. Most of the air purifying plants prefers shade, but Tradescantia can do well in both shade and sun. The colour of the foliage changes and becomes purple under direct sunlight. Cuttings can root very easily in water.
- One tradescantia pallida queen ~ 8 – 12 inch
