That's not Ammania gracilis. That is Limnophila aromatica, the variety sold by Oriental Aquariums in Singapore. A local Chicagoan here grows it alongside his Limnophila aromaticoides/old Gratiola.

Pantanal,

Limnophila aromaticoides flowers are white; Limnophila aromatica flowers are purple.

I know Jim has gotten the "old Gratiola" to flower, and the flowers are white. Another person flowered what I assume is the same plants and got light purple flowers.

Anyways, the Limnophila aromatica offered by Oriental Aquariums is a beauty. The colors remain deep purple and the leaf span is smaller than in Limnophila aromaticoides/old Gratiola. Also, L. aromatica tends to be more sensitive and less robust.
