Hi Molly,

Sorry to be so long in getting back to you, but I am a senior citizen and have been attending the college graduations of 4 of my 11 grandchildren the last few weeks. I am trying to answer all the questions that piled up as quickly as possible.

Your plant looks like a purple Swedish Ivy.

You can read my care tips for growing a Swedish Ivy in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. The picture is of a different variety, but the care is the same.

Again, I am sorry to have taken such a long time answering your question. Please let me know if you need more help

Best wishes,
