Purple Heart Plant

Purple Heart Plant (Tradescantia pallida) is a perennial houseplant that has earned the nickname “Queen of Plants.” The flower blooms in a pale pinkish colour and has deep purple long leaves. Its bloom is smaller than the leaves, with three petals and lovely lavender colour, making it ideal for growing in gardens.

The purple heart is a plant that grows one to one and a half feet tall and wide and is native to Mexico’s Coast region. It has long, oval-shaped purple leaves and produces little purple blooms during the summer. Its striking look makes it ideal for use as an ornamental plant in gardens, along roads, and along borders. This plant is an evergreen that has been employed in numerous landscaping projects to improve the aesthetics of a space. Both in a pot and a hanging basket, the plant thrives. Tradescantia pallida is a spiderwort species that belongs to the Commelinaceae family.
