‘Variegata Sport’


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Name statusNot established, an invalid unpublished name for the cultivar Tradescantia mundula ‘Fairy Wings’.

Listed online with photos by Patricia (2021). The name is in Latin, has never been published in hardcopy, and contains the prohibited word “sport” – so it cannot be established (Brickell et al., 2016, Arts. 21.11, 27.1, 21.17).

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