A beautiful stem plant, which was found some time ago on the Cuban island Isla de Juventud. When cultivated submerged its shoots are densely covered by narrow leaves. Young leaves are of a coppery to brownish red under good light. In the emerged form green ovoid leaves develop, and beautiful yellow flowers. There are several local forms of Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata; 'Cuba' is the one that is easiest to keep.
