Hello all!

I recently purchased a very small plant that resembles a shrub perhaps (?), but not sure exactly what it is and would be interested in seeing if someone could identify it!

It's about 1-1.5 inches tall, with dark green leaves and red colouring underneath (shown in pictures). It has very tiny leaves (1mm in size), and reminds me of a shrub, but I could be very wrong. *Blush*

Would someone be able to tell me what this might be? Thanks a bunch!

Yes, that's what it is! Thanks so much, mystery solved. nodding

And it does appear that way, HamiltonSquare! Now the challenge is whether or not I can keep them alive, since I live in a fairly dry climate aha.
