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.
