Also known as the Oyster Plant or Moses-in-the-cradle, Tradescantia spathacea is a dashingly handsome plant with a love of wearing bright pink undergarments under a cloak of metallic silver stripes. Tradescantias go way back to the 1600s when the famous English gardener & botanical explorer, John Tradescant, brought the plants back from the Americas to his employer King Charles I. They were so easy to grow they soon graced the living rooms of the entire English court!
P.s you can read the fascinating story of John Tradescant in Philippa Gregory's 'Virgin Earth'.
