You do NOT want to plant Creeping Charlie!! This is an insidious and invasive weed that can quickly get out of bounds and choke out grass and other desirable plants. I have it growing so thickly in my garden that my rear-tine tiller has a hard time breaking through it. I have to till the areas twice until I get it under control. I am at the stage now with this trashy weed that I am having to use gallons of weed killer, when I normally don't like to use any, just to kill the Creeping Charlie, and when it is dead, there isn't anything left there but dead brown dirt, it is so thorough at choking fellow plants. So "Just Say NO!" to the Creeping Charlie weed.

Mazus has become my choice of hardy ground cover; it tolerates shade and poor soil, growing and thriving in otherwise dead areas under my trees. It stays short (2") except in the spring when it has flowered stalks up to 4". Have not planted it between the stones in my walkway, but anticipate that it will do very well.
