Mazus Reptens use in all beds ok?

Can only find info from '07 on this ground cover. I love them! What I want to know is: I have open/bare spots in my beds, since the Mazus is so pretty between the step stones, could I plant it into the beds for ground cover too? My thought was that it crawls across and is lightly rooted and can be cut off, it would not harm any of the plants as they are rooted underneath the soil with roots growing into the ground. I picture the garden as a solid green covering like a carpet. Good????? Thnx Bunches, Jaemy

I love that plant! It sounds like a good idea. The only thing I would watch out for is that it can become invasive in the lawn. I'm actualy thinking of getting rid of my grass and just using Mazus. It's a better looking plant than grass anyway.
