Unknown from India

I've received the seeds of this delightful unknown from a friend, collected in South India.

I sow the seeds in late april, and trasplanted the little plants in June. Now they form a huge masse over 2 meters - 7'- wide (h 65 cm - 3 1/2') full of flowers!
Doesn't anyone know his latin name?

Morris, don't feel like your being ignored here. I sure don't recognize it. But I wanted to tell you it sure is pretty! Polly

RE: Unknown from India

Thank you, Polly!
I know that it's difficult... maybe it's more difficult to me to write in english!!!

I finally found the name of this beauty : Rhynchelytrum repens ;o) , also known as Ruby Grass
It's still in flower...!
