Plant ID

I had a plant that was in with some pansies last year. It is a prostate plant that had "berries" on the stems with the leaves. The "berries" were different shades of pink and white. They were the size of a pinhead and clustered together in a group of 100 or so - kind of like pepperberries. Any idea what this might have been?

I live in zone 4 and do not know if it will survive the winter.

Do you have a picture of this plant??

RE: Plant ID

sounds like pernettya

RE: Plant ID

I do not have any photos. I looked up pictures of pernettya as suggested and that is not it. My plant was flat to the ground like moss rose with 1 inch long leaves that were tubular and the "berries" were in a tubular shape also and very minutes.

RE: Plant ID

How about prostrate spurge, euphorbia maculata?
Check it out on 'google'. I found some good photos you can compare with your plant.

This weed is in several places in my yard.
