Hi,

I found these growing in dark places in the rainforest, Paraty, they were quite tall 50-70cm, the blooms large .4-5cm diameter..

Thank you! Smiling

I thought the leaves resemble some of the large-leaved Fuchias, so could be in family Onagraceae.

Other than that they also resemble large-leaved Imaptiens.

There's a lot of Ludwigia sp. listed..

You can view drawings of others in genus Ludwigia .. Ludwigia octovalvis looks similar.

http://plantgenera.org/taxa.php?id_taxon=15894&photo=1&lay_o...

If the photos on the Texas site are correct, the leaves are narrower on Ludwigia octovalvis .

Look at Ludwigia tomentosa, some of the photos look just like yours, and the flower petals are wider spread too..

Ludwigia tomentosa really looks like it, Janet! The leaves were really broader than with Ludwigia octovalvis shown on the Texas site..
Thanks! Smiling
