I do love this colour @novicegardenlover and @pelly probably another one not considered tropical and yet again it originally came from mums. It’s nice to look around and see a bit of mum in my garden which is odd because she had a classic cottage type garden

@flowerseed this one can be a complete thug if you let it. I'm often chopping it back to keep it manageable. It started as a cutting rooted in water from mums. I've divided it, hacked it and generally treated it meanly 😂

Morning all, was wondering why one of the #tradescantia had flopped. It's the sheer weight of the buds. I divided a small pot of cuttings from mum earlier in the year and every one of them is thriving 💜
