"Common" names are often added at the whim of the supplier or the store and usually mean nothing. From the photos I would suggest this is Ludwigia, probably L. palustris X L. repens from the colour which seems to have a hint of red. A clearer photo might help confirm
I'm taking Christel Kasselmann's nomenclature, Hiscock gives this as L. repens. Kasselmann notes that L. repens has several variant forms, but her photos clearly do not agree with Hiscock's L. repens. Another synonym for the latter is L. natans.
