Bugle Weed Ajuga Plant makes a low-growing, dense ground cover with deep green or variegated foliage that is tinted with bronze and purple.
Though cultivars are available in blooms of violet, white and pink, the most famous colors are the varying shades of blue and indigo. They blossom profusely, displaying an almost solid carpet of color during late spring and early summer months with floral spikes that protrude above the foliage. Because they will perform and prosper in dry, poor soils, they are great for rock gardens and naturalizing wooded areas.
Patio tubs look elegant with this neat trailing plant spilling over the sides.
This low-growing trailing evergreen is a perennial that spreads by underground stolons; ultimately, one rooted plant can soon cover a distance up to three feet. Plant newly rooted plants 6 – 12 inches apart to produce a complete cover.
