Any idea what this is? I got it from an East TN native nursery years ago. Fills the spot in nicely and easy to contain by yanking it up. Doesn't seem to get bugs or diseases. It's probably part shade. Thanks!

Looks like that, but it's just a ground cover, about 6-9" tall maybe? Small leaves 1.5x2.5" . Could be but would prefer more opinions. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure I've come across the exact same plant and I'm interested to know what it is. Forms a low mat. I couldn't get a piece to transplant yet.

@islander - I'd love to bring you a few pieces! Looks like you live in a lovely place -- I've always wanted to get out to Vancouver, and the islands sound wonderful. Smiling Sighing!

@pdermer1x - Come visit. Take the ferry and if you're lucky, you can see killer whales. Summer is best. I'm thinking of going down to the plant that looks the same and getting some pics to compare.
