I can't find anything that looks exactly like this, so I doubt it's native.

It's used as an ornamental ground cover. But (as one might expect from a useful ground cover) it's not shy about covering any ground it can get it's roots on.

I found it trying to cover the ground of a supposedly pristine redwood grove. One wonders where such things come from, and why they are so successful.
