What is this?

Asked September 18, 2016, 11:15 AM EDT

I bought this plant for my wife at a greenhouse in Erie Pennsylvania. It resembles clover in the shapes of the leaves but that's where the similarities stop. The plant has a vine like, creeping habit and thick succulent like stems. Its leaves are a brick red to dark green fade on the tops and has dark purple undersides...

Hello, and thanks for using the Ask an Expert System,

The plant in your photo appears to be a cultivar of Oxalis. There are a number of purple varieties of this plant, but I have not been able to find one with the vine-like growth habit of your plant.

For more detailed information I suggest that you contact the greenhouse where you bought the plant.
