Best Control For Creeping Charlie

  • Creeping Charlie in Lawn

Creeping Charlie, Ground Ivy or Stupid Weed! Whatever you call it, this weed creeps quickly. Today a small weed, tomorrow growing everywhere!

As a vine, Creeping Charlie (officially called Ground Ivy) grows close to the ground and produces tiny purple flowers. It can’t be pulled, since the vines have little nodes where each leaf grows. These nodes form roots in the soil, and each node may turn into a new plant if left behind.

While considered a broadleaf weed, Creeping Charlie can’t be controlled by all broadleaf herbicides, but Earl May’s Super Brush & Weed Killer can help. Applied at the right time, early spring and fall, Super Brush & Weed Killer has proven very effective, since it contains a special ingredient to kill the pesky weed.

For best results, simply combine our specially formulated Super Brush & Weed Killer with Turbo Spreader Sticker. This product helps prevent wash-off from dew or rain. Spray twice, 7-10 days apart.

Early prevention of weeds is the key to success of making your lawn look great. Earl May offers lawn care programs, premium grass seed, and expert advice to help you grow some great looking blades of grass. Let us help you find your green thumb!

    Great info about catching weeds early. Once they start growing it can be hard to stop!

    Our lawn-mower person mows 5 lawns every week.
    It really spreads that creeping charley because he is spreading the weed from lawn to lawn.
    I told him to wash the mower everytime he changes lawns to
    prevent spreading that weed. We never had creeping charley before and
    now we have it because it came from one of his other lawns he mows.
    We can’t spray or use the weed killer to get rid of the weed if he does not
    clean his equipment first…so that is the problem we’re facing…
