Also called moneywort or creeping Jenny, this weed invades areas of the lawn where grass won''t grow because of shade and constantly moist soil. It reproduces by creeping stems that root easily wherever their joints touch the soil. Creeping Charlie has oval to round leaves about 1 inch long. Yellow flowers, 3/4 inch in diameter, appear from spring to fall. It is sometimes planted as a groundcover in shaded, moist rock gardens.
