Rhoeo Tricolor- Oyster Plant
Rhoeo is a popular succulent that is easy for beginners but also loved by experienced greens for its brightly colored leaves.
The tricolored white, pink and green fleshy foliage of the Rhoeo 'Tricolor' (Tradescantia spathacea) also known as Moses-in-the-Cradle, Moses-in-the-Boat and oyster plant, is a bright addition to gardens in USDA plant hardiness zones 9b through 12. Native to southern Mexico and Central America, this evergreen perennial thrives outdoors as a border plant, ground cover or as a hanging plant in shady gardens. In colder climates, it is grown as an annual or a houseplant. When given enough light, it also produces small white flowers in the center of its rosette of sword-like leaves.
My plant finally arrived and I am happy to report it is in fact still alive. I am in shock. It was packaged extremely well and was thus able to sustain the cold weather in spite of the post office delaying delivery for multiple days for unknown reasons. I had previously stated I would not make a purchase from this nursery but I certainly would now!
I’m super happy with my Moses in the boat. It is gorgeous and doing really well in my house. The plants I bought were all packed well and arrived in great shape. Thanks so much!
