When it comes to house plants, I usually prefer the non-flowering kind. But I have had this wonderful purple-leafed plant for years now and every once in a while it produces these sweet lilac flowers. Lucky me !

Btw - if anybody knows how this plant is called, please holler. I am dying to know...


  1. I just came across your blog, it's great and your home is so lovely!
    Looking forward to reading more of your posts :)

  2. Thank you very much Rachel Kay ! I am very pleased that you like my blog so far :-)

  3. Just in case you're still wondering what the name of that plant is - I'm pretty sure its a Tradescantia pallida 'Purple Heart' (a.k.a., Purple Wandering Jew). Definitely in the Tradescantia genus at least.

    Anyway, I love your blog! As evidenced by my creeping YEARS back! :)
