IMG_4703.JPG IMG_4704.JPG This is growing profusely in my flowerbeds. When I discovered it a couple years ago I found it with tiny pink blooms, and found that it did not grow taller, only thicker. I thought I'd gotten rid of it with a very thick layer of wood chips for mulch. It is back. Does anyone know what this is? I've searched the internet and this forum and still clueless.

This is most likely Naked-stem Dewflower (Murdannia nudiflora), also known as Doveweed. The leaves look very similar and "small pink blooms" are produced. This member of the Dayflower family (Commelinaceae) is native to tropical and subtropical Asia, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea, and western Australia, but it is also a widespread weed in the southeastern U.S.
