Name statusNot established, an invalid unpublished name for the cultivar Tradescantia mundula ‘Fairy Wings’.

Listed online with photos by Korbas (2022). The name is in Latin, has not been published in hardcopy, and was given only as a synonym – so it cannot be established (Brickell et al., 2016, Arts. 21.11, 27.1, 27.6).

The newly-registered name ‘Fairy Wings’ is now accepted for this cultivar.
