What a sweet wee thing that plant is! Love the color variations in it.

That’s a wonderful color combo Miriam, I have two other forms of
tradescantia and maybe Ill have to get some of this for the garden. Here in Va it blooms early in April and may and then when it gets really
hot and by July it kind of goes dormant, the best time to catch the leaves and flowers
here is April /May before the heat arrives. After the flowers fade it drys out
and just has a few leaves at the base. they say it blooms if you cut it
back but Ive never done that I let it go and then when it dies out I just add
other annuals to over it ~ Pat northern va z 6

Thanks for you comments. So glad I can share the beauty. I have to tell you that everything looks better in person—especially under the canopy of the fruit trees. The true color really jumps out.

Hindsight now tells me that when I encountered one of these I should have bought it…even if it was $20 for a 10″ hanging basket..the colors were remarkeable and the entire plant a must have…I envy you…lol

You are so right Miriam. Sometimes the unassuming plants can be the real
treasures. I have a simple T. zabrina that I grow as a houseplant and it is one
of my favorites. Your blushing bride is beautiful. If you ever need to thin,
please let us know. And thanks for sharing Dale’s Garden with us.

Makes me want to plant a start or two immediately!
Is this a creeper?
Looks a lot like some of the things I’ve had in the past that did a fine job of filling in as groundcover.

Such a swell plant. A species native here in Virginia and otherwise known as Spiderwort before John Tradescant took it to England where it received its Latin name. Love it and it spreads too in multiple colors.

Such a delicate flower with very soft color.
I will dedicate this flower to our friend Nery who is recovering from multiple health issues.
She too is such a delicate human being.
Thanks Miriam, for inspiring us with Dale’s garden.
