Setcreasea pallida or Tradescantia pallida
Setcreasea is a beautiful colour and texture plant. The succulent leaves are oval and pointed and will reach 7 inches (17.5cm) long by 1 inch (2.5cm) wide. The fleshy, fragile stems are first erect later lying on the ground as a creeper. The inconspicuous blooms range from pink to pale purple and appear from mid-summer until early fall. Setcreasea are low maintenance and weather tolerant. For the best colour, grow in bright sunlight and a dry, cramped root zone. This versatile plant is great for containers, baskets, mass plantings, garden beds and can be used as an annual ground cover or grown as an indoor plant. They tolerate sun or shade – note: plants grown in shade tend to be more green than purple.
