Description: 

The trade name Bacopa sp. "Colorata" is most well-known in the USA. This plant is probably a red colour variety of our well-known Bacopa caroliniana. It is not clear whether the plant known under the name B. sp. "Colorata" in the US is already cultivated in Europe. "Standard" B. caroliniana may attain a red hue under strong light. Then it looks very much like the plant you can see in the photo above.
