I’m Avery (he or they), I’m an independent researcher and tradescantia specialist in the UK.

My main area of interest is the cultivation history of tropical tradescantias. I’m the international cultivar registration authority for the genus, and I maintain the first ever official cultivar checklist.

I have a constantly-growing collection of plants, and I’m provisional National Collection holder for tropical Tradescantia cultivars. Part of holding a collection is propagating and distributing plants, which I do through my small-scale nursery.

I always love finding new information and helping people understand my research! If you want to share any interesting sources, or ask questions about any of my work, feel free to get in touch.

Being ICRA is not a paid gig – I spend my own time and funds on this research. You can support me by donating via PayPal.
