Is Charlie really a creep? Southern gardeners would reply with a resounding YES! Glechoma hederacea better known as Creeping Charlie is a robust groundcover that is as beautiful as it is invasive. As its name suggests it creeps along the ground putting down roots wherever it comes into contact with soil. It spreads slowly in poor soil making it useful for slopes or areas where nothing else will grow.
On the 2013 garden tours in the Peace I came across three beautiful displays of Creeping Charlie that have made me rethink my decision to avoid this plant.
Do you use Creeping Charlie in your garden? What are your experiences with this plant? Would you recommend it for Peace Country gardens? Feel free to comment below!
