  • This usually covers whole pot and it has no flowers. But it looks beautiful when it covers pot

After so much searching I have found out the name of that purplish plant as Callisia repens

It is Callisia Click here more info click here

This is also called as turtle vine


It has a few names, the most common one being Sorrel.

It's also called Oaxala.

Although this is the classic shamrock shape, shamrock more often refers to true clovers with similar shape.

  • Thanks for your reply but I am not looking for that green Sorrel, I am looking for purplish small leafs plant which has spread in the entire pot.I want to know the name of that purplish small plant.

  • @user3110224 sorry, I didn't look at the picture close enough. Sorrel also comes purple at the picture resolution I was looking it appeared all the same. Sorry about that. On closer inspection I don't know what the purple stuff is. Looks almost like a tightly noded Jew of some sort.
