This is taking over our lawn and garden in the shady, wet spots. It has tiny white leaves and, when pulled the roots come up easily and tangle into a nearly solid mat. It grows in mulched beds, bare spots on the lawn, in between flagstones…nearly everywhere.

    The plant’s growth habit from your description, I’m wonder if this could be a type of water pennywort (Hydrocotyle)? Check out its different species and see if you could find a match. These leaves look similar to several IDs (i.e. Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides syn. Hydrocotyle japonica Makino, Autralian H. tripartita, H. maritima). Best wishes!
