Growing & Maintenance Tips for Tradescantia andersonii 'Zwanenburg Blue'

After all the flowering is finished (Note: individual flowers last for only a 1/2 a day) trim the cluster down to about 1/2. Foliage might become a bit unsightly by summer which would require trimming back to the ground. Attractive new foliage growth emerges for rapidly and will be a more attractive in the garden. The best flowering will be under full sun conditions. Divide in early spring to control spread.
