By Meanie

Tradescantia (Tradescantia virginiana (Spiderwort))

Got this for £2.00 from a car boot sale!!

This is very nice Meanie and a bargain to boot, (excuse the pun). I have not seen this white form, I only have the purple variety. I will look out for this one.

Bargain indeed! It's amazing what you can find if you keep your eyes peeled at these carboots! Looks like a good healthy plant too.

Homebird; I really prefer the white one, but as you point out, you don't see them so often.
Sid; At two quid I'd have taken a punt even if it wasn't as strong as this!
