This is a lovely hanging plant that Far East Flora brought in in recent times. With heart-shaped leaves that has a beautiful silvery venation on its upperside and purplish underside, it is certainly a unique plant that I find irresistible especially with its equally interesting flowers.

It is from the Apocyanceae Family and has many apt common names including Chain of Hearts, String of Hearts, Collar of Hearts and Rosary Vine etc. 2 links are attached below:

Anyway, this plant somehow reminded me of the rather common Saxifraga stolonifera (common name: Creeping Saxifrage) which I love even more. I would definitely post about this plant someday.
