Correct nameUnspecified.
Name statusNot established, an invalid unpublished name used to sell multiple other cultivars.

Listed online with photos by Perfect Plants (2020) and FLoraXchange (2022). No hardcopy description has been found, so the name is not established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 27.1).

The two listings seem to represent different Tradescantia zebrina cultivars, ‘Violet Hill’ and ‘Superba’, so the name cannot be linked to a single specific plant.
