Coming soon to a lawn or garden near you ... Henbit (Lamium amplexicauli)! The cover-all-lawns-with-purple-spring-color ground cover. If you're tired of the green look - consider purple. It's easy care with absolutely no maintenance and pollinator friendly! You don't even have to plant it as henbit will find its own way to your lawn.
It's a weed but sure is another purty one!
