  1. Those showed up at the farm in the late 1990s. They were considered to be weeds. I do not know why. I had never seen them before. One looked like yours, and another was blue. I did not question the need to get rid of them, and just did as I was told. My colleague just got ‘blue ginger’ which is not a ginger at all, but is closely related to tradescantia.

    • I prefer plants that arrive annually, it gives less work in the garden. The discoverer of the tradescantia is buried in a London churchyard with a monument to his memory. I think the name is John Tradescant. I wanted to visit the grave in London but unfortunately did not have the time
