Callisia navicularis is a spreading cascading plant with narrow fleshy lengthwise folded leaves approx 1" long. The flowers are lilac to bright magenta. It blooms in summer. The flowers open early in the morning and close in the afternoon, and last only one day
Tradescantia typically grow in moist, well-drained and acidic (pH 5 to 6) soil, though I have found the plants to be quite forgiving in the garden and tolerant of many soil conditions. Tradescantia plants do best in partial shade but will do equally well in sunny areas as long as the soil is kept moist. These plants like to be kept fairly moist, so water regularly, especially if you’re growing them in containers. Cutting the plants back once flowering has ceased can often promote a second bloom and will help prevent re-seeding.
