@FieryJude & @haleyt901 - Thanks to both of you for your help. Mine is purple & kind of runs & spreads along the ground. Shelley’s did not appear to grow this way, but the plant looked the same. I just didn’t know if it was the camera angle or my eyes. Or if I was wrong altogether. Sounds like mine might be a cousin. 🌴🌺🐾

@ShelleySnyder - Forgot to answer. Maybe I am still loopy, but at least I can feel my 💀 now. Anyway, maybe my wandering Jew is a cousin. It runs & spreads along the ground & is purple w/a small amount of the color green like yours has. I couldn’t tell from the pic how yours grows. 🌴🌺🐾

@cschulz02 tap the photo and you should be able to scroll thru pics of it. If they are grown in the ground they will run and probably root, there is a couple of different purple ones that really only vary by the intensity of purple, there is also one that's called pink stripe that is purple with pink strips on it that is outrageously cool!! There is all kinds of others to! Check em out!!💘😍

@ShelleySnyder - Thanks. I forgot, mine gets little pink flowers on it, so it must be that one. But how do you contain yours? Mine runs everywhere. 🌴🌺🐾

@cschulz02 mine is in a pot! It wouldn't make it thru a winter here. I always put it in a pot, right now the rain has flattened it🤣 💘😍

The best part of purple heart, is that it can grow from a cutting, has beautiful flowers and makes a stunning ground covering for the garden bed..

ShelleySnyder

@LoganBaker1998 yeah purple heart is a great plant and the bright pink flowers are amazing but sadly it's not hardy in my part of the U.S. have you seen pink stripe?

comment
LoganBaker1998

@ShelleySnyder yes I have, it was amazing was doing some bring clean last year when I pull this old shrub out and there was a massive purple heart under the foliage of the Bush... score!! 🌱😊

@LoganBaker1998 how great that would be!! A nice surprise 💜

LoganBaker1998

@ShelleySnyder regarding hardiness of the plant, buy some cheap teabags tear them open and put the tea leave on the top of the soil around the base of the plant, like mulch, and then whenever you water the plant, the plant will get extra nutrition from the tea leaves, add water retention and those lovely worms enjoy it immensely.. hope that helps a little..
