A friend was given a piece of a plant and asked me to identify it. I've seen it before but I don't know what it's called. I'm hoping someone here might so I can pass it along. Thanks!

EllieMaye writes: Looks like a slightly wilted bit of Plectranthus verticillatus - there are several "common names" that I've heard used for this plant, inclucing "Creeping Charlie", "Swedish Ivy" & "Swedish Begonia" (it is actually more closely related to mint than to either Ivy or Begonia). ~E Posted: 1:44 pm on October 25th
