purple plants

So, we have heard a lot about red plants. Any plants that are purple besides limnophila hipporaidus and purple cabomba?

There are Ludwigia species that are purple, I think one of them has a plant profile here on TPT

Profiles also show limno. Aromatica in purple and barclaya l. In purple.

Hyptis lorentziana can get a nice purple color under the right conditions.
However, Rotala macrandra 'mini' is by far my favorite purple plant. Only the undersides are purple, but since the leaves curl upward when under ideal conditions, a lot of it shows.

Philip, I though Rotala macrandra 'mini'is red. I may have to google for some pics right after this to see it for myself. Hyptis Lorentziana looks like "mint" plant, but interesting nonetheless.
