Signs of life
Forget the name, but its indoor and a trailing plant I had it many years ago it lovely colours will be watching for the name.
Well if ANYBODY knows the name, I would really appreciate it. She had this growing in her garden in a big pot teamed up with a lovely vivid pink flower. ANd the combination of the two was beautiful.
I think it is Tradescantia .I will put a photo of it in my first pictures ok.
I put a photo of it in my garden photos its the last photo and gets pink little flowers hope I am right
Just took a look, Clare. Yes!!!! That's it!!!! Thank you so much. I hate having no names on plants.
yep its is. is lovely colour and fast grower.
Just what I want. It will end up ina pot hanging from the ceiling.
Not for the garden in our part of the world, I'm afraid. The purple Tradescantia is gorgeous.
Yea, Rachel. So sad that we can't grow these 'tenders' outdoors. I might be able to move around in the house if that was the case.
Ha ha. Your house sounds like mine.
It looks like T. pallida...the purple heart plant. And it looks great in that pot!
Thanks, Bruno. WIll make a note of that.
We have a plant exactly like that in our garden, Jacinta. Never knew the name of it, but we always called it wandering jew. Got it originally in Madeira. It has survived several winters outside, including last winter. There are onther varieties which are more greenish.
Yes, Peter, Wandering Jew certainly rings a bell. But oh! I wouldn't chance putting it outside for the winter.
Good to see it likes it's new home love the colour.
Jacinta, I believe it is called Setcreasea Purpuria or Purple Heart.
