‘Albiflora Variegata’


Full nameTradescantia (Continental Group) ‘Albiflora Variegata’.
Name statusNot established, an invalid unpublished name for an undescribed cultivar.

Listed online with photos by West Cornwall Carnivores (2022). No hardcopy publication has been found, so the name is not established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 27.1). The description given is not sufficient to distinguish from other Continental Group cultivars, so the name is not accepted.
ClassificationOften labelled as Tradescantia albiflora, which is now considered a botanical synonym for Tradescantia fluminensis (POWO, 2022). It does not fully match that species, but appears to be an unknown hybrid from the subgenus Austrotradescantia. Like other variegated Austrotradescantia cultivars, it is now placed in the Continental Group.
Legal protectionNone.
AvailabilityAvailable from a small number of collectors and specialists.
