    Once I have the time I’m gonna take this to the local nursery so we can put this to rest because I’m way more curious now than I was before!

    Goodness, I have to say I agree with Iochroma and not Yvonne. :eek: It's not the dollarweed I know, which is Hydrocotle. That dollarweed has a round leaf, no split.

    Can't wait to hear what the nursery says.

    One of the problems here is the common name thing. At least 7 species are called "pennywort". Which one do you mean?

    I will concede I was not very sure of the Cymbalaria identification, and there are only two species of that genus that I know well.
    I am sure it's not Umbillicus, which I do grow. Also, I'm sure it's not one of the many species of Hydrocotyle.

    As always, if the OP would be able to post a picture of the flower on the plant in question, it would help immensely in its identification. I know it is November, and we may not see flowers until next year...

    Yeah there definitely isn’t any flowers on it :( only thing that’s there is the plant and the chick weed you suggested he can eat...once I get the chance to I’ll take some clippings to the nursery to see if we can get this figured out!
