Correct nameTradescantia fluminensis ‘Variegata’.
Name statusEstablished synonym, another published name for the cultivar correctly called Tradescantia fluminensis ‘Variegata’.

Established with a description by Manda (1915, p. 5). Because it was published before 1959, the Latin name can be established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 21.11).

The earlier and more widely-used name Tradescantia fluminensis ‘Variegata’ is now accepted for this cultivar.
