Purple Heart Tradescantia Pallida

29 reviews
Size
  • Purple Heart (Tradescantia Pallida) - A compact slowly spreading evergreen perennial to 10 inches tall by about 2 feet wide with succulent herbaceous purple stems bearing clasping elliptic leaves that are narrowed at the base and tip that are olive green suffused with purple on the upper surface and bright purple below with long sliver hairs along the leaf margins and stems. The interesting new leaves emerge in seemingly opposite pairs that are folded upwards to form fuzzy cup-like wings.

    In bright light one may see violet-pink flowers in summer but this plant is more for foliage and seems reluctant to bloom much. Plant in light shade or part sun and water regularly to only occasionally - as with many in the genus these plants are surprisingly drought resistant because of the water stored in the succulent stems.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Cool Sun/Light Shade.

    Rick, Well-Drained soil.

    Summer.

    Pinkish White.

  • Zone 10a 30 to 35 °F
    Zone 10b 35 to 40 °F
    Zone 11 above 40 °F
  • Your plant will be meticulously bubble wrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most of the plants will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety. If you want to receive the plastic pot & soil, please leave a note in your order. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on the availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    Our packaging materials are:
    - 100% recyclable and biodegradable cardboard boxes.
    - 100% biodegradable packing peanuts made from natural and non-toxic sources.
    - Bubblewrap to ensure the quality and safety of the plants.

    Though it is not yet possible to completely eliminate plastic from our packing process, we take responsibility for our plastic emissions by partnering with CleanHub. For every 1lb plastic we use, 1lb of plastic from nature will be collected and recycled before it can end up in our oceans.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging: https://succulentsbox.com/pages/shipping-return-policy

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Pretty Purple Plant

I bought this based on color alone, but I have no regrets. It's so pretty! However, I discovered a very informative blog post by Succulent Box afterward. Check it out for tips on creating a succulent garden based on more than color. As for this plant, I definitely recommend it!

Very nice. A little wilted upon arrival but perked up with a drink.

My 2nd order, didn’t go as smoothly as the first. First, it never shipped. They said it was lost in the mail, but if that were the case and they reshipped it, there would have been new tracking #. There was not. CS was great to this point, because they didn’t communicate the reshipping info, and I found out the night before it was arriving, and I was already upset w no pkg or communication. Because of the heat you really want to know when they arrive. I then changed my mind about a 3rd order, even tho I have discounts.

It has grown so much

I bought this succulent 3 months ago and it’s doing great. When I got it the color was so vibrant. Looked just as pictured. I bought the 2 inch and it has grown so much since then. One of my favs. A must buy. Highly recommend!
