    Probably best to wait a bit for ID - at the moment, the leaf shape suggests some type of Begonia...

    Probably not ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea), but the plant is young: duckduckgo.com/… Oct 29, 2018 at 14:44

Reminds me of a plant I used to have, Sparrmannia africana (or African hemp in English). Please post some of the (open) flowers as well, just to be sure.

The Sparrmania africana is a very easy houseplant. It grows very fast (when put in a large container), is drought tolerant, and is easily propagated by cuttings. However, my plant died all of a sudden after a few years (when it was 1.5 to 2 m in height), after research and reading more about the plant (and the reason why it could die), I found out that it needs a lot of fertilization.
