|Full name||Tradescantia (Andersoniana Group) ‘Atrosanguinea’.|
|Name status||Accepted, the valid name for a unique cultivar.|
Established with a description by Bailey (1917, p. 3364). Because it was published before 1959, the Latin name can be accepted (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 21.11).
|Classification||The name was originally published as Tradescantia virginiana var. atrosanguinea, but this is not a valid botanical variety (POWO, 2022). Like other hardy garden hybrids, it is now placed in the Andersoniana Group. These hybrids are sometimes mislabelled as Tradescantia virginiana or the invalid botanical hybrid Tradescantia × andersoniana.|
|Availability||Probably lost from cultivation, it was last documented by Bailey (1927, p. 3364).|
Described by Bailey (1917, p. 3364).
