I bought and still have a plant that was labeled as Purple Repens. Is this just a purple variant of S. Repens or something else? It puts off lots on runners and grows very different form S. Repens. Any know what it's true name is?

This is not my photo, but this is the plant behind the S. Repens.

Thank for any insight,
Mike

I've seen it referred as both Staurogyne 'purple' and Staurogyne Repens 'purple' but, yeah, it does appear to throw out a lot of runners and one wonders if it's related to S. Repens at all or is its own species

It's a nice looking plant and I hope it does well for you
