Central and und South Japan
Rotala hippuris comes from central and southern Japan. This plant resembles the submersed form of R. wallichii, however, it develops larger sprouts and reddish-brown stems.
It was brought onto the market under the trade name
"Pogostemon stellatus 'Superfine'", amongst others.
R. hippuris is also quite similar to Rotala sp. "Vietnam", and it has to be clarified whether these two plants are identical.
