Are you asking about the weed on the top right or the succulent ground cover? A closer and clearer photo would be helpful.

Hi Tropicalisland,

I'm not certain but the plant in question sure reminds me of Artillery Fern (Pilea microphylla)

I don't think it grows high though I think it just grows in width I saw some where it might be Bearberry CrotonEaster

LOL, my eyesight isn't the greatest anymore. Check out the photos for this Bearberry Cotoneaster in our database for comparison, it only grows 8 inches tall but 6 to 8 feet in width. Bearberry Cotoneaster (Cotoneaster dammeri 'Streib's Findling')

Now that you showed me those images about it I doubt it's that cuz it doesn't grow berries

How long have you lived where the plant is growing? (Maybe I should ask how long the plant has been growing where you live.) Long enough to know about the berries as well as how high/wide the plant grows?

Did you plant it?

Exposure & moisture would affect its' habit. It looks like the Pilea to me too.
