Creeping Charlie, ground ivy or gill-over-the-ground (Glechoma hederacea) is considered invasive by the Minnesota DNR
"Ecological Threat:

* It is not a threat to healthy native plant communities.
* Ground ivy grows best in semi-shaded to shaded moist soils and forms a dense mat, smothering other vegetation.
* It is a common urban garden weed and grows mostly in disturbed, degraded places.
* Ground ivy is found in most of the world of similar climate. It is known to have medicinal properties."
