This appeared and spread quickly. It looks like Creeping Charlie, but its got an ivy shape with lobes. Its also has tiny seed heads you can see on the lawn view pic. Ive tried to find out what this weed is and remove it, but with no luck. I hope WR can solve this mystery!

    You both are welcome! Thanks for the confirmed ID Sandra!
    Bobby, regrettably I don’t have any data to give a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to your ‘ Metro Atlanta & W Georgia’ question. You might be find the information helpful on the discovery in LA for this (new?) exotic species from the included link below. There is Plants of the World online’s distribution map for largeleaf marsh pennywort includes North Carolina & South Carolina also. Thanks to Sandra’s post & photos, we now know that this species is present in Roswell, GA.

    Thanks Laura! Sstuder’s third picture was a new wrinkle for me in regards to the pennyworts.
    I am very familiar with the lawn marsh pennyworts. It seems that the large leaf marsh pennywort prefers more southern climates. Is it rather uncommon for Metro Atlanta & W Georgia?
    Walter sure needs to give you a raise!

    If I could leave another pic youd see its densely covering the ground. With lots of tiny seed balls or flower heads.

    I see why youd suggest, but no. Each stem grows from a runner. It doesnt branch off. Also the Bristly Mallow leaves are more serrated.
