Ludwigia palustris is not the same as L. peruensis.  Ludwigia peruensis
is a misapplied name (not a real latin name to my knowledge) and I
believe it's really L. glandulosa, the really dark red Ludwigia. 
Peruensis may be a mistaken attempt to name L. perennis, but that's not
the same as L. glandulosa either.  So, when you see L. peruensis listed,
you know it's the dark red, difficult one to grow, but forget the
name...it's just wrong.

L. palustris is a N. American and Mexican plant commonly for sale in
most fish stores.  This one is more available as a rule than L.
glandulosa and is much easier to grow.
