Looks like a running Periwinkle, to see pictures, go to "picture of running periwinkle".
Good luck.

Could it be dichondra? Here is a description and a link to more information. Dichondra has a prostrate or creeping growth habit with circular leaves and entire margins. It grows very close to the ground, (usually not over 2 inches tall) and is a warm season ground cover. It has broad, almost circular leaves (looks similar to clover) and when mown low establishes a thick dense carpet look. When dichondra was first noticed, it was thought to be a weed, now it is used in many ground cover situations where normal grasses may not do as well.

It has a bright green color and a very good feel underfoot. Dichondra is highly resistant to diseases and will grow in partial shade to full sun. Beautiful in landscaping areas of no maintenance where adapted, and does not need to be mown. When used in lawn situations it can be mown for an even, smooth finish. It needs well draining soils and deep waterings, not shallow waterings. www.parkseed.com/.../3234?cid=pport0001&utm_source...

It's European ginger. It's a groundcover that grows wild in many places. It can become extremely invasive.
