‘Velvet Hill’


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Name statusNot established, an invalid unpublished name used to sell multiple cultivars.

Listed for sale since 2000 with no description, by Floricode (2000). No hardcopy description has been found, so the name is not established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 27.1).

Listed online with photos by FlorAccess (2021) and Taxonweb (2022). The two photos show unknown cultivars of different species, Tradescantia zebrina and Tradescantia sillamontana, so the name cannot be linked to a single specific plant.
