(aka: Callisia rosea) Tradescantia rosea 'Morning Grace' is a large-growing native (Maryland south to Florida) counterpart to our prior introduction, Tradescantia rosea 'Power Ranger'. Larger in Tradescantia rosea means 8" tall compared to 5" tall. Tradescantia 'Morning Grace' is a Michael Jenkins selection that makes a charming 8" tall x 8" wide clump of narrow green leaves and is topped from midsummer until fall with tiny lavender-pink flowers that open in the morning and close in the afternoon. After having grown Tradescantia rosea for over a decade, I find it one of the consummate rock garden plants...never becoming a pest like so many of its kin.
