Need help identifying a shrub. Difficult.

jmo_0121July 31, 2012

Hey guys, I'm coming from the shrub forum, I was send here by the amazing people who helped me identify s shrub. We still haven't found the exact species. Could you guys help me out, I recently bought it at a nursery here in Miami, the guy didn't know the name unfortunately. Here are the pictures. Thanks!

I wonder if it's really a woody shrub at all. I think it might be some cultivar of Iresine aka Bloodleaf. Those are more of an herbaceous perennial, I guess, they are just annuals here. The stems certainly look like Iresine, the leaves could be consistent with some variety along the lines of 'Purple Lady' grown under certain growing conditions.
