mystery purple plantcomments (3) July 3rd, 2013 in gallery
At first I thought this was lysimachia ciliata but the shape and texture of the leaves are all wrong. The leaves are the size of the palm of your hand with a soft delicate texture. The shape is that of a fat arrow and it grows very fast. This is 8 weeks old and stands around 5 foot tall and still growing. The stem is a bright purple and the leaves a deeper shade of purple. The are no flowers yet which I know would help in identifying this plant but lets see what you come up with. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is not a climber.
