Key to Tasmanian Dicots
Tradescantia (Commelinaceae) 4b:36    
Tradescantia fluminensis (formerly known as T. albiflora; and sometimes known as Wandering Jew) is a very common weed. Its leaves are elliptical and more or less evenly spread along fragile, but somewhat fleshy stems. These stems form ground covers or scramble over shrubs, rocks, etc. The flowers are white, with three conspicuous petals a couple of cm long.
