hello,  my mum has had this plant for over 30 years, she was a florist and never knew what it was, she called it Fred, it would be lovely if someone could identity it. 
Many thanks

    Hi, it could be a streptocarpus  - there are hundreds of varieties. (does it flower?)

    It’s a plectranthus verticillatus aka ‘Swedish Ivy’ ... great foliage houseplants ... strike easily from cuttings in water.
    I had one for years 😊 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Thank you so much. We have given so many cutting to people over the years. Everyone has a Fred plant 🤗
