Correct nameTradescantia mundula ‘Lisa’.
Name statusNot established, an unpublished invalid name used to sell the cultivar Tradescantia mundula ‘Lisa’.

Published by Halpin (1980). It duplicates an existing name in the genus, so it cannot be established (Brickell et al., 2016, Arts. 27.1, 21.23). The name has become reused by mistake, due to sellers mixing up the two cultivars.

The accepted name for this cultivar is ‘Lisa’.
