Anyone know what this is called ? It has come up in a sunny but weedy border The flowers look like salvia flowers? It’s very small and ground covering but the bees seem to like it! 
I want to clear the area to plant new things I’ve been growing!

    It’s Glechoma hederacea ... aka Ground Ivy. A pretty wild flower of woodlands and grassy places. Good for bumble bees.
