Can any of my garden experts tell me the name of this plant?

I bought this geranium and the long, drapey vine was included, but I have no idea what it is. It has amazingly stayed long and strong all summer.

    Dichondra repens is a small, prostrate, herbaceous plant native to New Zealand and many parts of Australia. It is commonly known as kidney weed in Australia and as Mercury Bay weed in New Zealand.

    Certainly looks like some kind of dichondra groundcover.

    Silver pony foot, Dichondra argentea or kidneyweed. Known by all these names. I know this because I have a lot of it. I used it as a ground cover and hanging from pots. I live in Cedar Park Texas

    Dichondra is correct and it does nee to be kept in line - grows fast and can take over your garden area

    It depends on where you live. Here in Texas, it's known as Silver Pony Foot. That's why going from area to area, you need the botanical name...Dicondra argentea.
