Would someone please identify this plant? New leaves come out bright green and mature leaves are purple. The person that gave it to me said it is a Sweet Potato plant, not so from my research. Thank you

Moved this to the Plant ID forum, others may be able to ID the cultivar. You can then mark the thread as resolved in that forum, which you can't do in the Ask a Question forum.
