Setcreasea pallida, a wandering jew relative that is sometimes called "purple heart". Not hardy in the north but will winter over in the south.

It's nice in a hanging basket, indoors or out, and its pink flowers look great with the purple thinginess! You've already found out how easy it is to take cuttings from.

My mom had a some pieces fall out of a basket and now she has a bed full of it. She doesn't mind one bit since she could never get anything to grow in that spot and pretty purple grassy thingies are a big improvement over bare dirt :)

It's good to know it grows hubby accidentally chopped up the other patch of it to make room for some other plants he bought!

When do the pink flowers show up? I haven't seen them!

usually by mid to late summer. they are pretty small though and are not particularly showy but they do add a bit of interest.
