plant called mind your own businness

i have the speading plant called mind your own businness growing in my lawn and in flower beds can you tell me what causes it and how to get rid of it.



I have mind your own business which I planted between my path and the fence, as there was an untidy looking narrow strip, I had put yellow pebble stones there but they kept getting skitted about by the dog overtaking me on the path!!!! so I planted Mind your own business which has made a nice green border and does not seem to mind the four legged trampling! As far as it is spreading into the border I just pull it up and dispose of it. I have not had the problem in the lawn. I would imagin a spot weedkiller on the patches. Not knowing to what extent it has spread. As far as the cause I can only think that a piece has been dropped there and trodden in as it will spread as you have discovered..

The smallest piece of this will root and regrow - I've been trying to get rid of it for a long time :-(

I've got in in my flower borders. I haven't managed to completely eradicate it when I tried. In the end I decided to just live with it and pretend it's deliberately there as a groundcover... It's not in my lawn though as a path is in the way.
