This old-fashioned houseplant -- also called "Mother of Thousands" -- is actually a good hardy groundcover for shade to part sun. Evergreen, fuzzy green foliage has maroon and light green to silver highlights. Long strawberry-like runners produce baby plants. Panicles of airy, white, bilaterally symmetrical flowers look like dancing ladies that float above the plant in late spring or summer.
