Solanum, plants <20cm high

Probably Solanum opacum. Do you mean mature plants were <20cm, or that these were seedlings? S. opacum does tend to be prostrate in habit, so if mature, that makes it more likely they are that species and not the very similar but erect S. nodiflorum.

Looking at this one again, the purple stems have convinced me it is S. opacum. The leaf shape is good for that species too.
