Post Do you know this ground cover?
Hi,
Can anyone tell me what this plant is please? I don't know if I'm spreading a weed or a great ground cover!

It is a thick ground cover, with very small white daisies.

I'm sure how to put a picture in. If you need one - can you let me know how?

regards
Ann

Sounds like Lippia, and is used as a ground cover... also as a replacement for lawn so that you do not need to mow and is quite hardy. My experience is that it spreads, but does not go nuts over everything. However that could be because it is not watered much. Does attract bees. Hope this helps.R

Lippia is a serious environmental and pastoral weed of the inland river systems of NSW and Queensland. It is a major threat to watercourses, floodplains and pastoral areas but it is not considered a major threat to farming and cultivated lands. It is estimated 5.3 million hectares of floodplain grazing country in the Murray–Darling Basin is affected by lippia.
In Australia lippia is a major pastoral and environmental weed. It has little to no grazing value and causes major environmental impacts in terms of increasing soil erosion and decreasing stream bank stability due to loss of perennial grasses and the reduction of plant diversity. Lippia can be difficult to control as it is an aggressive plant that dominates pastures where ground cover has been reduced by overgrazing.
