I think you may be looking for setcreasa pallida 'Purple Heart'.  This a
wandering Jew that becomes a beautiful deep purple-red in the sun.  It is
hardy in the south but a pot plant for us.  Once in a while it turns up in the
greenhouse at Home Depot or places that carry indoor plants year round.  A
quick look here didn't turn it up in a catalog.  I had it for years, Sheila,
losing it by failing to get a few cuttings before the freeze one year.
