I would really like to know what this plant is so I can buy more. No more at the nursey where I bought it in the fairy garden section. I think it is very pretty.

I do believe you are right. I got a close up of the bloom and it does look like it, doesn't it?

There always seems to be more choices, but the leaves do look more varigated.
Either variety would be make a lovely ground cover.
I think I will try to get some more.

You could try propagating it, it looks like cuttings would root easily Smiling
