Purple-leaved spreading groundcover. We picked up a couple of small plants for the planters that flank our front door, but bits of it escaped (a move I didn't discourage) into the garden proper. With regular water and some fertilizer, it grows impressively fast!

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: right fence border
