But I think people in North America see it as a weed for a reason. I think it's a good time to talk about a million PAAs asking how to get rid of Ground Ivy, which made up about 99% of the PAAs when you search Ground Ivy on Google. Since we have limited time, I will choose the article that I personally like the most to share, it titled "Creeping Charlie: Management and Value to Pollinators" published by University of Minnesota which has a very good Biological and Biomedical Sciences program. This article explained why Ground Ivy is considered weed pretty well. Why people can't just let the Ground ivy be and live peacefully with other plants in your garden. That's because it literally cannot live peacefully with others. According to this article, Creeping Charlie will infiltrate lawn areas that have been neglected or otherwise poorly managed. Once established within a lawn, creeping Charlie may suppress the growth of surrounding plants, due to a characteristic called “allelopathy”. An allelopathic plant will produce biochemicals that deter the fitness of surrounding plants. This article also talked about how to get rid of it, which I will put the link in the description.Hello, everyone!
