Blue star creeper problem

amother(southeast z7)July 9, 2008

I'm in the Huntsville area and my blue star creeper, laurentia fluviatilis,is getting round brown dying areas. I blamed it on the dog last year, but its back and just keeps getting bigger.Sunny area not too much rain yet. What's wrong. I don't have a sharing picture site so don't know how to attach a picture. I picked this plant for my train garden because of the true green color. HELP

Mine is doing the same. I know it is not getting enough water. I have mine in part shade.

I have tried for 3 years to get this growing between my pavers and in some places it's kind of ok but mostly it just keeps dying out. Doesn't seem to be related to water. I've finally called it quits and I'm having it grouted with cement. Enough is enough.
