    I don't know, but wouldn't it be beautiful in a hanging basket as a trailer?

    My sister went to school for horticulture many years ago and she taught me that the definition of a weed is anything that isn't growing where it belongs. I've used that definition my entire adult life to help decide if something should stay or go. So my (non) expert opinion is that if you don't mind where it's growing, it's a beautiful gift. If it's in the way or being invasive, rip that invasive weed outta there . BTW I've never killed a dandelion or wild clover, but I have been known to rip out some forsythia that wouldn't stop spreading.

    All Flowers are weeds, especially if they are where they don't belong.

    It is Crown Vetch.Not to be used in a flowerbed because it really spreads & will crowd other things out. It is used along roadside banks .

    This is horrible stuff. And it's being sold in some garden centers as a ground cover. It's a ground cover all right: it will invade and completely cover anything you put it near. Kill it now and don't leave any piece of it on the ground or it will re-root.
