Can you identify this plant?

We just purchased a house this week and I wanted to identify this cover plant in the front--it is super thick and seems to be over growing a bit. I hadn't seen it before and wanted to know more.

We may take it out eventually. Thanks!

I forget the proper name but it might be chameleon plant. It does tend to take over if that is it.

louisiana girl is probably referring to plant linked below. I pray it's way overcrowded ajuga instead. That you can divide easily.

Here is a link that might be useful: houttuynia (sp?) - let's hope not

Looks like Ajuga to me also. It spreads, but not very aggressively. An occasional trimming will keep it looking neater next to the concrete.
