Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea) is often referred to as ground ivy due to its appearance and growth habits. Creeping Charlie has a small purple flower. Charlie’s creeping plant is easier to recognize by its growth form.

Borax (sodium tetraborate) has been shown to be an effective herbicide for creeping charlie (Glechoma hederacea, also known as ground ivy, creeping jenny, and gillovertheground). Borax and 4 oz. (½ cup) of hot water Dilute in 2.5 liters of water. This solution covers about 1000 square meters.
Small isolated spots of Creeping Charlie can be pulled by hand or removed with a hoe. Keep shooting or hacking Charlie if he shows up and in time you can get rid of these weeds. In many cases, however, Charlie’s crawling is so common that pulling or cutting with your hand is out of the question.
Also, do not apply dicamba herbicide until 3 days after mowing and do not mow for 3 days after application. This allows the creeping Charlie to produce more leaves, allowing it to absorb more herbicide and giving the herbicide time to act in the plant system.
Spread a 2-3 inch deep layer of finely chopped bark or similar mulch on the flower beds you removed the Creeping Charlie from. Mulch will not eliminate or prevent Charlie’s creep, but it can slow regrowth. Mulch also keeps the soil loose and moist, making it easier to pull out newly germinated weeds.
