This plant is growing in a shade garden and would like to identify it. Leaves are green and purple with white bell shaped small flowers.


Thanks a lot,

Photo too small, can you add a larger one for some detail?

Thanks Calif-Sue for responding; at the moment I do not have a bigger pic but I will find out how to make a bigger pic. If it helps the stems are purple and the leaves are serrated thin and long. Big serration on the leaves and it grows in clumps.

My first thought was possibly Alternanthera 'Burgundy Threads': https://images.search.yahoo.co... but I don't think the leaf edges are serrated:

Cell phone photos are usually too small and will not allow us to see the details to make a proper identification. Can you find someone with a digital camera who would be willing to take a photo for you? Thank You!

Andrea has submitted larger photos to the database so this one is different. Thumbs up

(My cell phone photos are huge and have to be downsized by the automatic program here on NGA. ):nodding:

Not of this particular plant Sue, I meant in general, she has added larger photos in the past and this particular shot may or may not be from a phone. Just added that info to show that if the plant is in her possession, she may be able to take more photos. Thumbs up

I am going back to take a better pic because I do not think it is alternanthera. The leaves are a bit wider with wavy edges and the flowers are a white bell shape. Thanks a bunch. You all are great. I will be back soon maybe today with better picture.

I took pictures with a camera but there is no need to post them as plantladylin has identified it. Thanks a lot. The plant is hemigraphis repanda.
