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!
