Purple weed.

Postby Boo » Wed Aug 30, 2017 5:09 pm

I have this plant. I love it. Apparently it's a weed. It was given to me as a cutting about 13 years ago. I've not been able to identify it. The leaves close when darkness falls.
Any ideas from the green fingered people here?

There is an App called (I think) "PlantNet". In theory, you show it the plant and it identifies it.

And it is only a weed if you don't want it there.

I have purple shamrock in the garden, but it's more of a maroon colour, not as bright as that.
