Name statusNot established, an invalidly published name which may be a unique cultivar or may refer to ‘Lavender’.

The name may refer to Tradescantia fluminensis ‘Lavender’, but there is not enough information to link it to any plant known today.
ClassificationThe species Tradescantia fluminensis has sometimes been labelled with its botanical synonym Tradescantia albiflora, and with the invalid horticultural names Tradescantia viridis, Tradescantia repens, and Tradescantia reptans.
Legal protectionNone.
AvailabilityMay be a trade name for ‘Lavender’, still in cultivation. But this is not certain, so the plant is assumed to be lost. It has not been documented since its first publication (Royal Horticultural Society, 1999, p. 719).
