Tag says T. zebrina, but does not look or behave like such. Leaves stay this color in full sun.

Might be tradescantia sillamontana x zebrina?

Here is a link that might be useful: tradescantia sillamontana

Thanks for the reply. I've only seen T. sillamontana in pics. If it's possible to cross that with T. zebrina, it would probably yield this plant.

Can't say for sure, but sillamontana has a reputation for being promiscuous!

Oh my, well in that case... You're supposed to say, "bless her heart" after that, to make it acceptably polite. ...as long as everyone agrees it's not just a "regular species" I don't know about. I love Trads!
