You cannot help but fall in love with this plant. Rhoeo discolor Tricolor has blades of elongated foliage in attractive shades of cream, purplish-pink, and green. Undersides of leaves are darker purple, adding great visual interest to this easy-growing plant. This plant’s alternate name, Moses in the Cradle, comes from the way its flowers form within bracts at the bases of the leaves. These bracts are specialized structures, ideal for holding tight to this plant’s tiny flowers. At bloom time, small clusters of delicate, tri-petaled white flowers appear within the protective borders of the bracts. The flowers look like sweet babies, cradled in small boats. The flowers are also reminiscent of tiny pearls within an oyster shell—hence another alternate name, Oyster Plant. This charming plant helps with spreading a smile on all who see it.
