A succulent herb with cluster of 6-12 swordlike leaves arising from a trunk like stem. The leaves are green on top and purple/violet below. The small white three-petaled flowers are hidden purple bracts .
It is known as ‘Nargis’, in the city of Hyderabad!! Nargis, is associated with the eye in Persian, and it is thought that the name was given because the boat shaped bracts with the white flower in the middle looks like the eye. Interesting!
Botanical name: Tradescantia spathacea Family: Commelinaceae (Dayflower family)
