That is Vinca minor, a very common non-native evergreen groundcover.

Contained, it is innocuous. Unfortunately, in mild climates it doesn't respect boundaries - and has become a plague in understories of native woodlands.

In the Washington DC part of the world, I suspect it is pretty rampant in places like Rock Creek Park.
