Our garden is over an acre and is part of a subdivided orange farm in an irrigation area in the Riverina, NSW. Hot and dry in summer, frosty in winter

Help me identify this plant. This is a fabulous ground cover! Rampant but still manageable, purple green foliage with small pink strawberry like flowers. Does well in the shade and full sun. It's frost tender but recovers quickly in the spring. It spreads with runners but also grows from seed as it pops up everywhere! #plantid #groundcover #pink
