We got our first start of Tradescantia 'Pale Puma' as an unnamed selection from plantsman Scott Ogden, later to find out that it has been popular in the Florida Panhandle since the early 1990s. Tradescantia 'Pale Puma', which turns out to be a hybrid of Tradescantia pallida x sillamontana, makes a 1' tall x 3' wide mass of fleshy purple stems adorned with 2.5" x 1.5", alternately spaced, rubbery leaves. The leaves are glossy green in the center but change to purple toward the edges. Bright sun will turn the entire plant a lovely shade of purple. The clumps are topped with small white flowers in October. We find this tough-as-nails, deer-resistant plant to be a superb bold-textured groundcover, hanging basket, or container filler.
