: I want to plant some perenial low creeping plants and was told Creeping Jenny was really pretty. I heard it was more obnious weed and very,very invasive. I don't want anything that will take over like Mint. Live in zone 5b/6
Yes, creeping jenny will take over if you don't keep after it. Maybe what you want is a groundcover that clumps or spreads slowly to a predetermined size and has 'good garden manners'. If it's a sunny site, consider creeping thyme. There are many different varieties. Here's a site that should be helpful.
