Description for Rhoeo Spathacea Tricolor, Rhoeo Variegated

Rhoeo spathacea is the synonym of Tradescantia spathacea. Moses in the Cradle is a rather succulent herb with a dense cluster of sturdy sword-shaped leaves arising from a trunklike stem. The leaves are a dark teal-tinged forest green on top and vivid violet underneath. The small white three-petaled flowers are hidden in boat-shaped purple bracts nestled in the leaf axils. Flowers and seed are produced all year. Probably, the boat-shaped bracts with a small white flower in the middle look like an eye.

Planting and care

In most areas, Rhoeo is considered an annual, though in fact, it is a tender perennial. Rhoeo is hardy only in USDA plant hardiness zones 9-11. This means that it can only tolerate temperatures down to about 20 degrees F (-6 degrees C) before they are killed off. Keep in mind that this is the temperature that will kill them.
