When I first saw this pretty little prostrate plant, I thought it had to be something nice. In the shade it even has colored spots on the leaves. I was so sure that I let it grow. What a mistake! Not only does it not stay pretty, it self seeds like there is no tomorrow. It’s called thyme-leaved spurge( scourge in my book) and is listed in my weed book. Ralph Waldo Emerson said of a weed, “A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.” As far as I can see the virtues of this plant are that is a cute baby and it only reproduces by seed. So if you see this one and you think it is pretty, that’s fine, but don’t wait too long to pull it.
