Ajuga Reptans

Ajuga vine is a hardy ground cover that spreads quickly, requires very little maintenance and rarely needs fertilizing. Gardeners in rural areas will appreciate that it is rabbit and deer resistant. Ajuga is commonly known as Carpetweed or Bugleweed and is useful as a ground cover, but also thrives in containers. It is perfect for shaded areas where it is difficult to find other flowering plants that will succeed. Planting the Ajuga Reptans on slopes helps to prevent soil erosion.

The leaves of the Ajuga will vary in color depending on the variety chosen, but all will produce blue blooms throughout the summer. The foliage will often darken to a bronze color in the fall. The plants spread by runners and will grow to a height of approximately four inches.

Ajuga vine will thrive in zones 3-9 and is exceptionally durable; Even when the foliage is damaged the plant will typically regrow from the root the following year. The plants do not require pruning, but some gardeners choose to mow or trim the plants after the blooms have died; As long as the root is not damaged the plant will return.

Bugleweed likes to grow in acid, loamy but well-drained soil. It’s a member of the mint family and doesn’t want conditions to be too wet or too dry. If the climate’s too wet, the crown will rot. If it’s too dry, the plant will die back. Besides a substitute lawn, bugleweed is also useful as a foundation plant, in planters, as edging or in bed.

If a gardener grows bugleweed from seed, the seed should be sown in the late summer or the fall.
