I thought was some kind of foliage plant.Never knew what it was.Then seen it had flowers!The flowers make me think salvia....lolBut sure not salvia foliage...lol
stems are purple.It got stuck in birdbath cause was ants that just thought it was the greatest thing!
so what is it? I know it can't take full sun cause SIL burned hers up in ground in full sun.

it looks similar to creeping charlie - definitely not the same thing tho!

creeping charlie is a lawn weed (it does have it's redeeming qualities tho...has a nice purple flower in the spring laugh )

I learned while at Livingston walmart that it was sweddish ivy.They had a large pot with a mix of other plants.It listed the plants on tag& I knew what all the others were.they used cladiums/pothos/spider air plant/pentas/dracea with purple leafs.was neat,but I'd not pay $21.....and that was on clearance from $35.wasn't even a pretty pot.was just a plain jane nursery pot. I DID buy a peach kalonchoe grinnnn

THANKS!
