‘Shiny Hill’


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Name statusNot established, an invalid unpublished name used to sell multiple different cultivars.

Listed online with photos by Taxonweb (2022) and Global Flowers (2022). No description has been found, so the name is not established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 27.1).

The two listings seem to refer to different cultivars Tradescantia zebrina ‘Purple Plush’, and a Tradescantia Albiflora Green Group plant, so the name cannot be linked to a single specific cultivar.
