Q. What is this plant

I was told I was planting Peppercress Greens, but it doesn’t look anything like the pictures I’ve seen of Peppercress. Is this Peppercress or just a weed that grew in its place?

Appears to be Pepper Cress.
Here is a good image that matches yours.

Q. We have a cress like growth spreading across our \’lawn\’

Are you able to identify and how to eliminate it. We did put lawn feed and weed killer down however the growth continued after we thought the problem solved.

If you can keep the roots moist without water dripping from the pot, it should work. Watercress needs constant moisture to thrive.
