  1. spanish oyster plant

    A Spanish oyster plant, also known as Tradescantia spathacea or Moses-in-the-Cradle, is a type of perennial plant that is native to Central and South America. It gets its name from the unique shape of its flowers, which are enclosed in boat-shaped bracts that resemble an oyster shell, and from its regular use in Spain and other Spanish-speaking cultures. The plant has sword-shaped leaves that are green on top and purple on the bottom, and it often grows in clumps that can reach up to 1 foot in height. It is frequently used as a ground cover or potted plant and is appreciated for its ornamental value and low maintenance requirements.
