About White Velvet

White Velvet is a perennial evergreen herbaceous plant of the genus Tradescantia. This species is one of the most succulent and xerophytic, but at the same time one of the most attractive species of Tradescantia.

The leaves are a dull olive to gray-green in color, sometimes blushed purple but the leaves and new stems are so heavily covered with cobwebby silver-white hairs that the plant appears quite silver. In summer appear the single magenta flowers with three petals that are crowded into the terminal leaf axils.

Growing Tradescantia is easy and you will find the plants to be quite resilient. Tradescantia typically grow in moist, well-drained and acidic soil. Tradescantia plants do best in partial shade but will do equally well in sunny areas as long as the soil is kept moist.
