These are more foliage than flowers, but all are in shades of the color purple. And all make great houseplants that will add a touch of elegance to any room. I have to confess that I have not come across Purple Oxalis before and immediately think of the green variety which I regard as a pernicious weed. However in purple it looks fine. The other plants on the list are more familiar although some are more purple than others. These fifteen purple houseplants are described in an article which I found on the Balcony Garden Web site.

1. Purple Oxalis
Native to Brazil, Oxalis plants display unique, pinwheel foliage and a wealth of starry blossoms. Some varieties produce purple leaves or foliage with deeper accent markings. Its delicate foliage and dainty flowers make it an ideal choice for containers and indoors alike. The tiny, triangular leaflets close at night, which make it a fun plant to have around the house.
Coleus is a beautiful, showy plant that is available in various colors and styles. Mostly used as an annual for outdoor gardens, it is super easy to grow as an indoor plant as well. The vibrancy of its colors comes from receiving an?adequate amount of sunlight. The more the light, the more vivid the colors. However, shade does allow the colors to form as well, though they will be a tad subdued. Coleus is remarkably easy to propagate. The eye-catchy, fancy leaves can liven up a dull drawing room, while the compact structure does justice to space-constrained corners well.
