Purple Shamrock AKA Love Plant
The Purple Shamrock or Love Plant requires bright or direct sunlight supplemented with a cool indoor temperature of 60-65 degrees. They can tolerate higher indoor temperatures but will go into dormancy prematurely and or begin to take on a "tired" appearance if temperatures go above 80 degrees for prolonged periods of time. Use average potting soil with good drainage and allow the surface soil to dry out between waterings.

This happy-go-lucky plant seems content to be anywhere. You can grow it indoors year-round, or move it outside on a shady patio for the summer. It can be planted outdoors in frost-free regions, however it is fast-spreading and can be invasive in the garden.
