    Its like a ground cover in my neighbors yard. Has these little white flowers all over. Can someone tell my what they are called. My neighbor said this was planted when she was a child and has no idea what they are.

    it has several common names when I was growing up

    wandering sailor, mile a minute Maidens blush (sorry all southern hemisphere names)

    but it is a tradescantia or commelina whichever the most recent name is. I think commelina is the correct one but you can find it under both.

    sorry I have no idea as to the species

    maybe Tradescantia fluminensis commonly known as maidens blush
