This Mexican native spiderwort comes from a Sean Hogan collection about 80 miles northwest of Sierra La Pena in Coahuila, Mexico at 6,500' elevation. Tradescantia sillamontana 'Hogan's Hero' makes a delightful garden plant in addition to a great hanging basket specimen. The tight greenish foliage, which is covered in thick white hairs, clasps the fleshy stems to form a 10" tall x 18" wide clump. In late summer, the stalks are adorned with small lavender flowers, but you're growing this gem for the foliage.
