Notes:

This short purple-ish plant is beginning to grow all over the side yard and is taking over all area where the grass should be growing. What is it and how do I control it?

    very expensive at the lawn and garden stores, just tell your neighbors you have some they can have if they will come dig it up and it will soon be gone.

    I don’t appreciate ajuga either… I’d rather be growing flowers and veggies.
    But when it’s just turf… I’d keep the bugle weed to break up the monoculture.

    Over at about.com, they call it an “invasive”.

    I have a little patch of it on my front walk that I inherited with the house. I love it! I did come back much thicker this year than last. It seems like a very elegant little plant as a edging or border.
