Re: Progress on the garden wall

Marge: Bingo!! That's the one...persistence thy name is Glechoma
hederacea! This is the most stubborn plant...after five years I've made
absolutely no inroads in getting rid of this thing. Anybody out there
ever seen this plant used successfully as part of an overall landscaping
plan because I think I'm really tired of trying to get rid of it...you
know, sometimes if you can't beat 'em...you may as well figure out how
to make it useful!

Hey Melody,<br><br>With tiny purple flowers, I will bet you bottom
dollar that your<br>plant is Glechoma hederacea, AKA creeping Charlie
AKA ground ivy. <br>Another clue is that this plant has a definite
scent; not unpleasant<br>but very noticeable when you pull it. I have it
in abundance. Have<br>written about it with some scans that might help
you in IDing your<br>pest. Check

do you distinguish Creeping Jenny from<br>Creeping<br>> Charlie? I'm
sorry, I don't know the official names of either of<br>these,<br>> but
one of them is downright invading my entire
property...I've<br>pretty<br>> much resigned myself to having this
creeping plant everywhere and I<br>do<br>> like the little tiny purple
flowers, but I'd just like to know<br>which one<br>> I have.<br>> <br>>
