‘Cerulea Minor’


Full nameTradescantia (Andersoniana Group) ‘Cerulea Minor’.
Name statusAccepted, the valid name for a unique cultivar.

Published by William Prince & Sons (1832, p. 209). Because it was published before 1959, the Latin name with no description can be established (Brickell et al., 2016, Arts. 21.11, 27.1).
ClassificationLike 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.
Legal protectionNone.
