Commonly known as Wandering Jew - Tradescantia Zebrina have been a popular houseplant for ages adorning as hanging basket plant where it has a lovely cascading effect of foliage colored plant - this one has a lovely striped leaved feature which appears to have a iridescent features.
The second one (as in comparison)
Appears to be in a reverse tones from the first one.
I doubt they are specified and identified and therefore - I'm just calling them as (Silver) for my ID.
The characteristics of this particular one is that it appears to be brilliant when planted in shade incomparison the red counterpart where that one fades into pale green and jaded tones.
(You can note the difference from the first picture above)
These are ideal for shaded garden areas where colors and vibrant tones are lacking. These fulfill those areas very well without much fuss as they are hardy plant. One thing is to be considered is that they do then to have invasive behavior where they would move out from the designated planted area if planted on ground - and therefore may need constant pruning and replanting to keep them compact and to give that effective visual display.
Also they are great together as companion plant - this one is growing together with Chrysothemis pulchella (also known as sunset bells, black flamingo or copper leaf plant)
