Common names like White Velvet and White Gossamer suggest how the hairy leaves of this Tradescantia sillamontana make it a good choice for a sensory garden. But I also like the stepped pattern of the alternate leaves which is tighter in sunnier conditions where the plant doesn't need to stretch for light.
