Tradescantia sillamontana 'Gold Stripes' is a wild and crazily variegated form of the dryland, succulent spiderwort, which hails from the northern Mexican State of Nuevo León. Although typically used in hanging baskets and summer containers, an in-ground planting of Tradescantia 'Gold Stripes' makes a superb groundcover, forming a 15" tall x 3' wide, dense patch of silvery-haired foliage, layered with irregular creamy stripes. The patches are further adorned with small lavender flowers in August and September. We find it amazingly useful as a full sun groundcover, albeit deciduous below 20 degrees F.
