Greetings All! Need help identifying a plant I pinched a runner of and
love. I have it in a pot and I'd say it qualifies as a ground cover, The
leaves are green about 1", oval, with a darker green arrow about mid leaf.
It is all red now. The flower is a small, 1/4+"  pink sphere which looks
somewhat like a miniature pincushion with pink pinheads evenly spaced all
over it. I have no idea if it is annual or perennial, tender or hardy. Any
ideas? TIA
