What is the name of my plant?

lavalleemAugust 7, 2005

I have a plant which has long stems and 3 triangular shaped purple leaves at the top of each stem. They fold down at night. I am having problems with little bugs in the soil and need to know the name of the plant. Any help or tips to deal with these bugs and the name of the plant would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Perhaps it is a purple Oxalis?
