Oyster Plant


Categories , ,

Common Name: Oyster, Moses in a cradle plant,
Scientific Name: Tradescantia spathacea
Plant Family: Commelinaceae
Light Requirements: Shaded, Indirect Sun
Water Demand: Low-Moderate

The oyster plant is a popular groundcover for its low height (8inches) and unique coloration of green leaves backed with purple. A nice, slow-spreading plant like the oyster prefers a part sun to part shade location to look its best. It’s ideal under small palms or it can be used as border plants for beds.
