Cool Creeping charlie help please

I bought a plant called creeping charlie but i cant seem to find much info online on this plant (google search) does anyone have any experience with this plant? so far ive had this plant for about 4 months now and it appears to be growing fine. it grows weird too, it grows along the gravel and twists around other plants like a vine. i also read once that you can eat this plant.

and advice on this?

I think the plant you're talking about might be Cardamine Lyrata which belongs to the mustard family. Whether it's edible or not I don't know, but if you could post up a picture of it that would help with identifcation

it kinda looks like a much skinnier version of moneywort but doesnt just grow straight up but also twists around other plants. and its leaves arent as round as moneywort but more spade shaped

oh nom othing like that. The stalks are thin like that but the leaves look nothing like that. Theirs section (like moneywort) where leaves come out. and the leaves arent rounded like that but more spade or heart like. more pointy then anything. Im gonna try to get a better pic
