Looking for a thick ground cover that is green even in the dead of winter? Do you want something that will cover your yard with absolutely zero maintenance? Then look no further for you have found your answer! Chickweed is taking America and Tennessee by storm. It will quickly cover your lawn and garden in a dense mat of green foliage. It even has white flowers that will reproduce rapidly creating more and more of the wonderful ground cover you love! Forget about growing your lawn or wildflowers! Forget about flower beds and vegetables! Chickweed will proudly cover any area you let it. Hurry supplies are not even close to limited get yours today!
Please note that this post was done in sarcasm! Do not ever try to grow chickweed as it will do as I said and spread, spread, spread! It looks very nice in its dense mat but beneath the chickweed nothing else will grow and it will choke out other plants around it. According to various herbalists it has several benefits in treating inflammations and abscesses although I can't verify this from experience. It seems to be enjoying the area beside our back porch. This area is destined to be redone so its days are numbered!
