So I presume in that mess of an order they mislabeled this as Rotala H'ra Vietnam.

The shorter red plant in front of it is some "super red" Ludwigia I recently got (elsewhere). The leaves are different shape. Is all Ludwigia "Super Red" the same as "Palustris"?
I don't know the origin of the 'super red' but it's not the same thing as the palustris you might find along ponds and wet places in much of the US. The latter is a bit bigger and more of a peach color.
