Description :

Native to both north and south America, the Tradescantia genus has some fifty species of creeping or upright perennials. We were familiar with the 'Sweet Kate' variety, an ephemeral from Virginia with triangular violet flowers borne above golden foliage.

And here is Tradescantia X andersoniana 'Sunshine Charm'!

A dazzling new variety:

  • with foliage that is golden in the sun or chartreuse in partial shade which sets off the beautiful lavender-pink flowers.
  • It is vigorous and easy to grow,
  • with a dense habit and more abundant flowers than the 'Sweet Kate' variety.

Planted in mass it can produce remarkable colour compositions associated with other golden-leaved partial shade varieties, intensely luminous chromatic combinations with Carex elata 'Aura', Heucherella 'Sunrise falls', Acorus 'Ogon', Hakonechloa, Luzula sylvatica 'Aurea'

If you grow this spiderwort in a pot, we suggest a very colourful combination of Tradescantia 'Sunshine Charm' + Heuchera 'Sugar Plum' + Primula 'Ice Pink' . Wow!!

Grow in the sun (not too hot) or partial shade in good, well-drained, not too dry, humus-rich soil. Hardy.
