Notes:

This started out as a tiny little clump of white flowers two years ago at the end of our driveway, it now covers half of the front yard. It makes for a beautiful ditch cover and I love that it chokes out the crabgrass which seems to be its favorite rooting spot. But just what the heck is it? And can it possibly be ‘tamed’?

    I would recommend hiring a weed control company if it is taking over your lawn. It is likely killing most of the grass in its path so reclaiming already overgrown areas may require new grass. The weed control company could easily keep it from taking over any more of your lawn by applying pre and post emergent weed kill products to your lawn.

    I don’t think you are lucky enough to have a yard full of partridgeberry. But… Maybe houstonia? http://hawthornhillwildflowers.blogspot.com/2011/02/innocence-houstonia-procumbens.html

    I think this is Virginia buttonweed (Diodia virginiana) http://www.southeasternflora.com/view_flora.asp?plantid=31 It has long leaves compared with Partridgeberry (Mitchella repens) which has rounded leaves
