Rotala sp. ‘Colorata’ is very probably a variant of the variable species Rotala rotundifolia. Often it is also labeled with the erroneous name “Rotala indica”. In comparison with “standard” R. rotundifolia, this Rotala assumes an especially intensive light red to orange red colour, especially if it is under good light. The leaves are narrow lineal. The stems have an overhanging to horizontal growth habit and form dense bushes as they ramify readily, just like Rotala sp. “Green”, which is always light green. Rotala sp. ‘Colorata’ is a good combination partner for it.
