Foliage plant ID please.

Had several of these plants for my baskets and containers this year but forgot to keep a record of it's name.It has long shoots so is a sort of trailing plant.It stood up very well to the intense heat of the summer and also high winds.It never once wilted even when plants in the same container did!

I am hoping to take cuttings but will keep the bigger plants outside to see if they survive the winter.

    I think I can answer my own question as to ID.It is Plectranthus coleoides 'Marginatus'.

    Another question.If I pot up one of these plants from the garden to overwinter would cuttings taken in the spring make big enough plants for baskets etc in the same year?
