Correct nameTradescantia cerinthoides ‘Nanouk’.
Name statusNot established, an invalidly published name for the cultivar correctly called Tradescantia cerinthoides ‘Nanouk’.

Published with a photograph but no description by Athena Brazil (2013, p. 55). No hardcopy description has been found, so the name is not established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 27.1).

The plant is assumed to be identical to Tradescantia cerinthoides ‘Nanouk’. ‘Nanouk’ is legally protected, so it is now the accepted name for this cultivar.
