Tradescantia 'Blushing Bride'


This has to be the strangest of all the tradescantia we carry. For most of the year, Blushing Bride stays green, featuring sturdy, upright stems and a more bushy habit, with large spaces between the leaves. Once cooler temperatures begin in the fall, the virus that gives this plant its color becomes active, causing gorgeous blushes of pink and white to emerge from fall until spring.  

Tradescantia 'Blushing Bride' needs to grow in bright, indirect light to thrive. Put the plant in a bright, sunny location, but protected from scorching afternoon sun. To bloom, Tradescantia need between six and eight hours of indirect sunlight daily. Too much or too little light can cause the leaf colors to fade. Allow to approach dry between waterings.
