Tradescantia spathacea - Moses-in-a-Boat Plant

Tradescantia spathacea - Moses-in-a-Boat Plant (Tradescantia spathacea - Moses-in-a-Boat Plant)

This is a common ground cover here in San Diego, CA. Typically, it would be blooming; however, with the extreme drought it's probably not going to bloom well. Photo taken July 19, 2014.

That looks rather neat and tidy for a Tradescantia?

I still don't think of it as being a was for many years Rhoeo discolor.

This plant is very widely grown as a groundcover in the tropics.
