The extremely polymorphic (variable) species Limnophila aromatica can be found growing in swampy or boggy soil in its native region of southeastern Asia. As an aquarium plant, limnophila aromatica is a beautiful addition to any high light aquascape. Depending on nutrient and light levels, the plants can be anything from a bright green to deep purple, with bronze edges on the leaves. Plants that reach the top of the aquarium will often begin to form emersed foliage. The flower is very pretty purple, and is slightly fragrant.

The plant is occasionally cultivated and harvested from the wild for its edible leafy stems. With its attractive flowers, the plant can be grown as an ornamental in gardens.
