    This plant has been circulating within our local plant club, but we cannot seem to ID it. Thought I'd see if someone here might recognize it. Plant in question is the stem plant which has reached the water's surface. Second photo shows lower stem where you can see aerial roots:

    Certainly Dutchy is correct...

    Ludwigia repens, (maybe) "Rubins" there are a number of varieties...

    I agree it is a variety of ludwigia as I have kept it in the past..I am sure Dutchy and the others are correct..

    Very nice plant, good bushy growth, as well as nice variety of color range even among the same plant,
