Tradescantia albiflora 'Nanouk'

Tradescantia wows with compact variegated foliage, sporting purple, pink, green and cream stripes. Depending on the light conditions, it will either grow upright or trail around the pot, small white and yellow flowers may emerge over the growing season too.    

Just provide this plant a sunny spot in indirect light in order to keep the foliage vibrant, you'll know if the plant isn't getting enough light as the foliage will turn more green.
