    Hi i just took cuttings from this plant and was wondering if i can root it from the cuttings? And if so how. And the name of the plant? It seems to like the shade, And i think it spreads itself sort of like a ground cover. It has a gorgeous purple flesh that im in love with and tiny lavender color flowers. Well thank you for any and all help! :)

    Yes you definetly can root it from the cuttings, it is a grown cover plant and it can grow well either in the shade or under direct sun light, ( I have it both ways) it can be invasive.
