‘Laekenensis Rainbow’


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Name statusNot established, an unpublished invalid name used to sell the cultivar Tradescantia mundula ‘Lisa’.

Listed online with a description and photos by Glasshouse Works (2019). No hardcopy publication has been found, and the name 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 Tradescantia mundula ‘Lisa’.
