Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Heart' is a low-maintenance, herbaceous perennial plant known for its striking purple foliage. It is a member of the Commelinaceae family and is native to Mexico.

'Purple Heart' typically grows up to 1-2 feet in height and spreads up to 2-3 feet wide, forming a dense mat of trailing stems. The plant produces lance-shaped leaves that are a deep, vibrant purple color, with a metallic sheen in the sunlight. In the summer, the plant produces small pink or purple three-petaled flowers that bloom atop the foliage.

This plant is an excellent choice for use as a groundcover, border plant, or in containers. It is also well-suited for use in hanging baskets, as its trailing stems will spill over the edges of the container, creating a beautiful cascading effect. 'Purple Heart' prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil, and is relatively drought-tolerant once established.

In addition to its ornamental value, Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Heart' is also known for its air-purifying qualities. It can help remove toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and xylene from the air, making it an excellent choice for use in indoor spaces.

Overall, Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Heart' is a beautiful and versatile plant that is perfect for adding color and texture to any garden or indoor space. Its low-maintenance nature and air-purifying qualities make it a popular choice among plant enthusiasts.
