'Tradescantia spathacea' commonly called as 'Boat lily' or 'Moses in a Basket' is a tropical sculptural herbaceous perennial that thrives in containers but needs to be kept indoors during the winter. It's a good houseplant. The unique flower and lovely leaves make it a popular choice. To differentiate this plant from bromeliads, look for the linear leaves with purple undersides oriented radially and dark to metallic green on the top, as well as the distinctive bract-enclosed blooms.

These are 1-year-old plants and 10-15cm in height at the time of delivery.
