Mazus reptans from Ken in SC

Posted on |

Small somewhat spread out plant with small floers at the end of stems. Growing in clay/sand disturbed area(cleared path/road) adjacent to beaver flooded wetland.

Hi Ken,

your plant is an introduced plant from Japan and the Himalayas, and is called Mazus reptans. Its common name is also mazus. It is a garden escape and groundcover that has now spread widely in moist lawns.

I apologize for the delay in my reply. I had software issues that only now have been fixed. Thank you for your patience.
