Name statusAccepted, the valid name for a unique cultivar.

Established with a description by Hoopes, Bro. & Thomas (1876, p. 49). Because it was published before 1959, the Latin name can be accepted (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 21.11).
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.
