Thank You! Bought this as a small houseplant with a tight cluster of smooth, glossy foliage. After a couple of months, it began to grow quite vigorously, producing trailing branches with small, purple, trumpet-shaped blooms. Can anyone help me identify it?

It will also grow well outdoors when your weather warms a bit.
