These are growing all over my lawn. I mow them, but they always return. Are they useful?

    After careful study of pictures on plants.usda.gov, I accept deadnettle rather than ground ivy, but not henbit.

    Henbit or deadnettle. Very similar looking, both edible. Eat the weeds!

    Bingo. Comparing with pictures on wikipedia, it’s definitely deadnettle.

    Jim – Are you sure? The leaves look like spades, not cat paws. Also, these grow in stalks, not like ivy. Is it a variant of ground ivy?

    Ground Ivy, Gill-Over-the-Ground. Mint family. Check out on Wikipedia if you’re interested in possible medicinal uses.
