Ground Ivy is an attractive creeper with tiny edible mauve flowers. It is a hardy plant that can handle sun, heat, frost and even thrive in shade/ partial shade and shady moist conditions. Grow it under hedges and shrubs, where it will form an even green carpet, choking out weeds and cooling the soil. The plant travelled and spread widely with settlers because of its medicinal uses.
