Ludwigia Peruensis, or Ludwigia Glandulosa, is a beautiful amphibious plant. It will grow either emersed or submersed.


Native to North America, where it grows on banks of waterways. Emersed it produces bright yellow flowers, in its submersed form, it will not flower. Its spade-shaped leaves range in colour from dark green to brownish-red. The top of the leaves is olive green in colour, whereas the undersides are reddish-brown to deep red. Its height will range from 40 – 55 cm (16 – 22 inches.)


Red Ludwigia is a perfect mid-ground plant in the average aquarium. Or, even placed as a background in smaller aquariums. They need high light intensity. The vibrancy of this plant depends on the amount of light it receives. Poor illumination will fade its colours. Propagate by cuttings.

Great plant, thriving in my tank, great service too

Didn't receive

Didn't turn up with the rest of my order

so far so good

Usually red ludwigia fails quite quickly but this current bunch of 3 are growing well and retaining the red colouring. Is this because it is hygrophila rather than ludwigia? At any rate, it adds some lovely interest in my largely green planted tank.
