In Italy also called, Erba miseria, because it is very easy to cultivate... and because it has also the fame bringing bad luck! I don't believe it.
Much better the English names: Purple Heart or even Purple Queen.
For sure when in Autumn it flowers it is such a joy to see and to admire these tiny flowers with brilliant yellow anthers. The flowers are at the tip of the leafed branches, almost the whole herb wanted to show that it can also bring beautiful sons... and not only misery and bad luck ;)
Tradescantia pallida purpurea L, 1753
