We have had lots of rain recently. What can I do about them?
Your photo did not come through, and I am uncertain of the exact question. The flowers should be yellow. Any blue or lavender might be a weed that has made its way into your creeping jenny bed.
Any weed that is able to establish within your Creeping Jenny will be very difficult to get rid of, unfortunately, without killing off the bed.
New home and garden beds, Piedmont of NC. I have a variety of perennials that transplanted when we moved. Creeping jenny volunteers have popped up all over. I have let them travel as ground cover which is definitely helping keep the ground moist during the afternoon sun. It dies back in the winter where we are and it will rebound in the spring. I'm wondering if I created a monster and should cut it back? It's currently growing at the base of well established Mexican Petunia, Iris, Montauk Daisy, Speedwell. Let me know if you think I should cut it back.
It will usually overcrowd and kill out anything in its way. I would remove it if you want your other plants to survive, or leave it if you only want this in the area.

I grew creeping Jenny at a previous residence. It was lush and beautiful. I grew it on the North side of my house- in full sun between edging stones and the sidewalk. I loved the look so much that I have tried to grow it at my new house. The old house had sandy soil. The new house has more clay. I have planted it between edging stones and the sidewalk x 3 seasons. I water every day. At my new house it barely stays alive. The leaves are tiny. It doesn't have the yellow green color as before either. Does it need fertilizer? OR What?
It sounds as though your soil is not draining well. If you have too much clay in the soil, the roots aren't able to grow. Here's an article about how to amend your soil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/how-to-improve-clay-soil.htm
and another about grown Creeping Jenny:
It has taken over a section that there are shrubs and don't want to kill them
The best way, without doing damage to your shrubs, will be to hand pull, and continue to do so with any new instance. Eventually, it will not have enough energy to regrow.

I have creeping Jenny floating in my pond in a pot, it has grown over the side of the pond. What should I do with it in the winter? Should I put It in the greenhouse in water or just leave it? THANKS mike
It is hardy to USDA zone 3 so it should be fine where it is.
Does anyone know what this ground cover is? It's not Creeping Jenny. I bought it at Armstrong's in Los Angeles during the summer and they don't remember carrying it!
There are several members of the genus Lysimachia. This is likely one of them. Although it may not be L. nummularia, it does appear to be a closely related species of Lysimachia. It will, likely, have very similar care of it cousin, Creeping Jenny.

Thank you very much. I suspect it was mislabeled which is why I can't find the exact kind. Your answer is very helpful. Thanks, again.
My garden zone is 5 and my shade garden is in deep shade.
Not likely. It will remain close to the ground, and provide a very good "living mulch" for your hostas. They should be fine together.
