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

Published with a description by Julius Roehrs Co (1935, p. 17). 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.
