Setcreasea Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Heart'

Purple Heart

Setcreasea, commonly referred to as Purple Heart or Purple Queen, is a greenery favorite. Setcreasea produces a vibrant purple foliage with delicate lavender blooms. Its colors will come to life through early Spring, Summer and Fall, right up until the first frost while producing small lavender blooms in summer. Setcreasea is desired most for its vivid foliage, rapid vigorous growth, heat tolerance, low maintenance, and semi-trailing mounding growth habit for landscape and beds. Setcreasea is great for early Spring through Fall with vibrant colors to brighten up any container or landscape.
