What is this Plant?

I have a plant question. I have gotten a plant given to me it looks something like a Wandering Jew only it has stiff leaves and is all purple. It grows upright and gets white flower's in every-other leaf.


I am looking to find someone that might know what this plant is. I think it may be a plant that grows outside for boarders, but not sure. Please let me know if any one knows what this is. I have no image at this time. Thanks. Debra

I think it's called Persian Shield. Look that up and see if it looks like your plant.

It sounds like a Oyster plant, also known as Moses in a Basket, or Boat Lily. You can google Oyster plant and it describes a purple plant, with up right leaves and white flowers. check it out. This plant is very invasive here in S. FL.
