|Full name||Tradescantia (Andersoniana Group) ‘Carnea’.|
|Name status||Accepted, the valid name for a unique cultivar.|
Established by James Backhouse & Son (1895, p. 39). Because it was published before 1959, the Latin name with no description can be accepted (Brickell et al., 2016, Artrs. 21.11, 27.1).
|Classification||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 Staff of the L. H. Bailey Hortorium (1976, p. 1120).|
Described by Weston Nurseries (1939, p. 55).
|Cultivar group||Tradescantia Andersoniana Group.|
