Years ago I took a cutting of an unusual plant I found - it was all red/magenta. The leaves, stems, roots were all shades of the same color - not a spot of green anywhere. It rooted and grew quickly and was a good hanging plant. Unfortunately my mom killed it when I was away at college, and I've never been able to find it again. I've searched the internet and found nothing even close and gotten wide-eyed stares from flower shops when I've asked. Do you have ANY idea what plant this is - and where I could get one?

It's the only thing that came to my mind, if yes then it is Coleus.

Hi & welcome! I was thinking about Alternanthera too. Lin put some A. ficoidea pics. Varieties of A. dentata could be in consideration for the possible plant.
The Alternanthera dentata database entries on this site:
