Weed or Ground Cover?

innovisionApril 23, 2006

Does anybody know what this is? In less than two weeks it has overrun all my gardens. I live in Fairfax, VA. I need to remove it but I'd like to know what I'm removing.

This will make it easier for people to view the plant. How large is that plant?

I love Mayapple, and I wish I had your problem! If you don't like it, why don't you donate it to your local horticultural group who is probably holding a plant sale sometime soon?

I have a few small clumps, and I cheer each year when they return (They will go dormant when the weather gets hot this summer.)
