Tradescantia x andersoniana ‘Blue and Gold’

Tradescantia 'Blue and Gold'

A lovely looking little Tradescantia. Unfortunately it didn’t really like the position I first planted it. It was a bit too shaded. It did put out a couple of flowers, but really didn’t look well for the majority of the summer.

I moved it to a sunnier spot further up the border and fingers crossed it takes a bit better and gets through the winter.

It sat in a pot over the winter of 2020-21 and was then replanted in the Feb 2021 re-jig. Slugs had hid in the pot and eaten it!

It is now in a really sunny spot, so I am determined to try to get it doing well.
