Plant ID

Okay, have completely forgotten the name of this nice "spiller" plant in my hanging basket. It is the small, round leafed plant on the left side of the planter on the wiry stems (under the fuschia and the white Impatiens). Nice to use as a filler/spiller. Will grow prolifically in the ground, here where I live, so better in containers. Anyone know the name of this plant?

Okay, was able to ID the plant using a very cool app called, "Plantifier"! It is Muehlenbeckia complexa, Maidenhair Climber.

great looking container!

RE: Plant ID

Thanks, hoovb! I can't take the credit, my wonderful next door neighbor and bff who is also a wonderful gardener made one up for me and our other bff. I have it dripped and in the shade, and all the plants are very happy!
