Tradescantia zebrina is a herbaceous perennial often grown as a houseplant.  It has interesting variegated foliage striped green, white, and gray leaves with purple undersides.   The leaves are ovate and clasp the stem at the base.  Tiny three-petaled lavender-purple flowers appear infrequently indoors. Tolerates a wide range of growing conditions.  Does best in filtered sun, average room temperatures and moist but well-drained soil.  Reduce watering in the winter.  Pinch back to encourage bushy growth.  Plants can be pruned back hard every spring and can be taken outside on a protected patio in the summer.  It is commonly grown in a hanging pot.
