This plant, whatever it is, spreads fast.
It’s not terribly ugly. I actually like its purplish foliage and bright blue flowers. But it’s taking over my violets’ turf. That’s not acceptable. And it spreads by runner, making it even more aggressive than the violet. Look at this piece I pulled out of the ground. It must be over two feet!
I know it’s somewhat ridiculous to selectively weed an entire lawn, but I think I can eventually rid the yard of this nemesis if I pull some out every day. My husband says it’s futile. He wants to poison the lawn, but that will kill my violets, too. And just because I refuse to poison the lawn does not mean that I don’t have any say in what grows there. I do!
So beware, plant! This means war!
