Hi kperera,

To the best of my knowledge they are the same plant. The current accepted 'official' name is Ludwigia sp. 'Rubin' but the common name is Ludwigia sp. 'Red'. Many plants have a scientific name and common name such as Pogostemon helferi is many times referred to as 'Downoi'.

Hope this helps!
