They are found in marshes and shallow waters in Southern United States, Central America and in the Caribbean Islands. A very polymorphic plant and it exhibits this character from one area to another. They readily cross with other species of this genius, hence identification of sub species and geographical varieties is difficult. This plant has two leaf forms, one with round leaves slightly elongated and the other with lanceolate leaves. These two forms also appear in different colours, either with green or with red leaves. The leaves are 2-3CM long and 1.5-2.5CM broad. Like other species this one is also suitable to mid-ground position.
