It’s got small jagged pointy leaves and grows as fast as a weed. Some kind of ground cover maybe? Can’t seem to find it anywhere.

    Maybe one of the cultivar in the slender brake fern/silver lace fern (Pteris ensiformis)? Check out the Victoria fern (Pteris ensiformis ‘Victoriae) from these included links and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
