‘Silver Sicilian’


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Name statusNot established, an invalid unpublished name used to sell multiple cultivars of Tradescantia zebrina.

Listed online twice by Eden Collection (2016, 2022). No hardcopy publication has been found, so the name is not established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 27.1).

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