The foliage is interesting enough in the plain green version of Tradescantia, plus the purple, white or pink flowers that make the plant look like a bonus spider plant. While many may say Tradescantia is for full sun, in our dry Ontario Augusts I think all colours do best in a little shade unless provided with ample soil moisture.Relatively disease and pest-free. 'Charlotte's Web' has chartreuse foliage and the classic purple flowers. Also more sunburn resistant than other cultivars, earning it a Proven Winner designation.
Bloom time June-August
Hardiness Zone 3
