You are correct that it is related to the wandering jew... It is sometimes called "Purple heart".

I cannot speak to the hardiness in your zone, but it is very easy to care for. Perhaps if you look in the hortiplex forum, you can find the info...

I grew this in Kentucky, Zone 6, as a kid. It came back for several years. I'm not sure it would take a hard Zone 6 winter but it is easy to root cuttings and keep starts indoors over winter.

i like to call it "spawn of satan"
if you plant it in zone 7, you'd better love it! cause it will never ever ever ever ever leave.
