Two or three Osbeckias exist; a tradescantia (T. septem clavata) covers certain patches with its bright blue flowers.
We found also an elegant species of tradescantia, with a blue flower.
We observed among the plants along this portion of coast, the tradescantia virginica, and T. liatris, and squarrosa scariosa.
Among the best for this purpose are the spiderwort (tradescantia) and Scilla.
The most familiar examples are the various species of tradescantia (Fig. 88), some of which are native, others exotic.
The fuchsia and tradescantia contained bundles of raphides of the same form and equally as fine as those of the acrid plants.
