Ludwigia ovalis turned green?

I bought some Ludwigia ovalis, it was really small leafs and a nice copper color. I put it in my low light tank, and the new growth leafs were double the size of the old ones and bright green. I have since gone with CO2 and a Finnex Ray 2. My new growth is still big and green?

Has anyone seen this before? I've searched Google and can't find anyone with this problem.

The old leaves are probably the emersed form if it was bought from a shop. For better colour you can lower the nitrates, and dose extra trace (especially iron) but with low light you are probably going to struggle.
