This plant is under a tree in my garden. Leaves look like ivy (to me) and flowers are purple. Only one flower left on it now.




Thanks

That's OK. It can be a bit of a thug, but it will thrive where other plants wont.

My mother had some where I grew up and lived during college years. That it could be mowed was an added benefit for our particular yard.
