Purple leaves with hot pink patches

Saw this on a garden tour over the weekend. No idea what it is - thought it was Coleus from a distance but the leaf shape and texture don't match, and there's no pattern, rhyme or reason evident to the pink on the leaves. Any clues?

Reminds me of a Houttuynia cordata, but I'm not finding one with such dark leaves. Maybe a new hybrid?

Alternanthera "Purple Splash" or similar cv.
