Tradescantia pallida ‘Purple Pixie’ is a very pretty Tradescantia with purple stems and green leaves that are flushed with purple. This is what my plant looks like – it was grown from a single cutting that I potted up almost six months ago; as the stem grew, I took more cuttings that I inserted into the same pot of peat-free compost. My plant has not taken on the more vibrantly coloured purple foliage that this cultivar is usually known for – due to the light levels being very dull this spring, thanks to all the rain we’ve experienced.
