'Nanouk' produces thicker, crunchier and much larger leaves than the standard 'Tricolor'! Variegation is also more stable. The stem is stiffer than many other Tradescantia fluminensis cultivar so the cascading effect happens with a more mature plant.
Grows fast and fairly care-free. Variegated leaves with purple undersides. This vine-forming plant is very popular as houseplants! Variegation can vary from leaf-to-leaf. Flowers can appear from spring through summer.
