Creeping Charlie,Jenny, and ground ivy are all the same thing, it just depends on what part of the country you come from. When I first move out here to Cheeseland from NY, everyone was talking about creeping charile and I had no clue as to what it was.

It will die from Weed be Gone or any other 2 4 d product, but if you don't get it when it 1st comes out in the spring, you may want to wait until after a couple of frosts and then hit it.
The frost will weaken the plant and allow the herbicide to do its work.
Another good time to hit it is within a half hour before a big summer thunderstorm, after week or so of no rain. The plant will sense the incoming storm by the drop in air pressure and the leaves pores will open up to absorb the incoming rainfall. Timing is tricky, but you can take out some harder to kill weeds such as ground ivy and violets that way.

man, i REALLY hate that stuff!!! it's SO hard to get rid of. if you can catch it early, you might be okay. gotta keep up on it tho, if you're pulling it up...

it just keeps coming back and coming back and coming back!!!

now, mike, that's a TERRIFIC suggestion!! and we're going to get a big storm tonight and it's been really hot/sunny for the past week...

if the storm doesn't come in before i get home from work, i'm going to try your suggestion!! (i have some weedbegone in the garage).

will this trick also work for the weeds that are growing in the crack in the cement along my driveway? what's there isn't the creeping charlie - it's just the usual, mundane variety of weeds that usually grow in spots like that...
