Ferns & Creepers ?

These two started out in pots - that was sometime last year. We soon found that they are really fast growing plants, requiring regular trims (if you want to stop them from taking over all of the neighbouring areas).
They were later moved from the pots to the ground, where they grow now, unencumbered by boundaries. I've found that allowing the purple wandering jew (trandescantia pallida) to grow in the midst of a bed of these ferns, particularily the second, makes for a very pretty picture - purple necks sticking out of the sea of green, with the perennial pink flower.
