greenthumb99 Lucketts, VA (Zone 7a) Looks like Tradescantia pallida, Purple Heart or Purple Queen Wandering Jew. Tender perennial you'll need to bring inside soon.
trackinsand mid central, FL (Zone 9a) ditto
Vestia San Francisco, CA Agreed. It is one of the best houseplants for cleaning the indoor air.
tlm1 Jacksonville, FL (Zone 9a) Ditto, Tradescantia pallida….Very hardy….Tried to kill it…Can not! Though i will say I don't use any herbacides, or any "cides" at all! This is a VERY hardy plant….Will continue to come back year after year…. Good thing , if you like it! :-)
Edited to say…Never tried it indoors…The color is only prominent if grown in FULL sun…Maybe I should try it indoors…Might be able to keep it under control that way! :-))))

trackinsand mid central, FL (Zone 9a) tim, i gave up trying to control it years ago...:-( at least it's pretty. i'm fairly certain that the only way to control it is to never plant it! LOL
greenthumb99 Lucketts, VA (Zone 7a) Up Mid-Atlantic way and north all one has to do is not bring it in in the fall. ;-)
huckaby Madison, GA Indoors it is still invasive if it is too close to your other potted plants
