Plectranthus australi - Creeping Charlie (Swedish Ivy)
Creeping Charlie features rounded, glossy, dark green leaves with scalloped edges and blooms whorled, tubular, pale mauve to white flowers in terminal racemes. Also known as Swedish Begonia. This plant is great in a hanging basket or someplace it can cascade down. When it gets too long feel free to pinch it back and it will respond by branching and becoming denser.
