Thankfully, Creeping Charlie is Glechoma hederacea and Ajuga is Ajuga reptans so it's not the same plant, but ajuga is in the mint family so it can spread. I had planted it in my front garden years ago, and it was too low growing, so I pulled it all out and never thought about it again until I found that patch. I've thought a few times to start a thread called Never Plant This, because there is a few I've put in that I regret now, if only I had known...lol
Mint, magenta spreen (it NEVER goes away!) come to mind. I love mint as a tea, but it hasn't been worth the often lost struggle to control it. :rant
