Prunella vulgaris is a creeping perennial that self sows, sometimes agressively. But I think if you keep up with it, it's easy enough to control. And you can harvest the whole plant and dry for later use as a medicinal herb. It stays green a long time, even into the winter here and I have read that some people like using it as a turf alternative:

It normally grows between 1 and 2 feet high. I enjoy it and am wondering if it does deter some pests, since I don't see any bugs around it Confused
FAITH over fear!
