Creeping Charlie, also known as Ground Ivy or Creeping Jenny, is a low-growing perennial plant that spreads from above-ground roots and shoots. This makes it easy to spread out, choking more favorable plants. It grows in clusters and has long, square stems that are smooth and pliable. Its leaves are veined, rounded with lobed teeth, and will create a mint-like smell if disturbed. The weed’s lavender-colored flowers appear in the spring. While mowing your lawn can limit the spread of this aggressive weed, it does not prevent future growth.
We can take care of this with our liquid broadleaf weed control which is selective to controlling tough weeds such as these. Call our office to schedule an application.
