It's going to be difficult to get a true identification until you get it in better conditions. My best guess is a light starving S. purpurea at this point. But time will tell. :o

I'm guessing a light-starved Scarlett Belle.

I think it is a scarlett belle that is light deprived. Scarlett belle is a very nice hybrid when it has enough sun.
