Creeping Charlie is a ground-hugging plant classified as an aromatic evergreen and a mint relative. Creeping Charlie is a perennial, meaning it can live over two years and thrive in moist shady areas, though it can also tolerate sun. Creeping Charlie was thought to be a good shade groundcover.
It all depends on your level of infestation and the weeding removal method you pick; it’s best to get rid of this evergreen creeper during early-spring or fall (after the first frost). Grasses on the thin and sparse side need to improve turf health and increase density to get a handle on these weeds.
As previously mentioned, hand pulling is one of the most pet-safe common ways to eliminate Creeping Charlie. Although you’ll likely have to repeat this process to eliminate it completely, it may be a practical solution for vegetable or flower gardens.
