My mom had the regular tradescantia in her garden and I was looking for some of that when I found "Sweet Kate". It came thro the winter a little worse for wear...the new young leaves were reddish and I thought "uh-oh...not a good sign." but it came along well and seems happy with the moist spot it's in. bonus!

I call this my Jewel in the crown, a friend gave me a piece a few years ago, and I've split it and put two new clumps out the front...and kept one at the it but it does spread...

Had to move it again, Crissue. it needed more shade as the summer progressed. Slowly coming back...and I have no trouble with it spreading...that would be a real bonus.
