Name statusNot established, an invalidly published name for the cultivar Tradescantia zanonia ‘Mexican Flag’.

Published with a description by Graf (1959, p. 431, 969). The name is in Latin form, so cannot be established (Brickell et al., 2016, Art. 21.11).

The valid and more widely-used name ‘Mexican Flag’ is now accepted for this cultivar.
