This is Tradescantia zebrina (previously known as Zebrina pendula), although it is often confused with other Tradescantia varieties such as T. fluminensis.


The plant you ask about with purple and green leaves is called "Wandering Jew" in my neck of the woods.

  • Yes Right, that is it's local name! Officially it is 'Tradescantia zebrina' as Bamboo's answered!
