Native or Evasive

Asked April 17, 2016, 10:20 AM EDT

We have recently moved to a new house in La Plata with a very overgrown garden. My long-term goal is to have primarily native plants. I am wondering if the plants pictured below are native to the area what what they are called. Thank you!

The plant on the right looks like chickweed, a weed. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/common-chickweed
Neither plants are native.
