crawling plant

Post by IL-PINE » Sun Nov 03, 2013 1:38 pm

can't seem to figure out this plant.
found trailing on the ground at Wied Babu and Bingemma.
might be a common species which I might have easily identified with flowers.

Very difficult to tell, but I thought of a Kickxia or Theligoium by instinct (the former often has hairy leaves, the latter not that trailing). Convolvulus have alternate leaves so to be excluded too. I will let you know if more ideas come to my mind.
