 Tradescantia pallida, Setcreasea pallida
Family: Commelinaceae
Purple heart, Purple queen
Origin: Louisiana, Florida, and Eastern Mexico
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersOrnamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This sprawling evergreen groundcover produces deep purple foliage and stems when grown in full sun. The rather brittle stems, a foot or more high, have a tendency to flop over, creating a trailing effect which lends itself nicely to informal planting beds, rock gardens, or containers. The rather inconspicuous, three-petalled, pale pink, one-inch flowers are produced from the tips of stems and last only one morning. Will turn dark green if in poor light. Propagation: Cuttings.
