The Bugleweed is a herb-type (herbaceous) plant with colorful leaves that work great as a groundcover. It is a low maintenance, perennial plant many gardeners prefer to use as a groundcover as they also provide a splash of color with their profuse blue flower spikes. The spikes shoot out approximately six inches during the spring.

The Beauty Of Bugleweed

The plant will produce its flowers throughout the summer and into the fall but are the most stunning during the spring when they have been planted in mass. There are some varieties of the plant that feature variegated foliage and produce blooms in pink, white or rose. These plants will grow from six to nine inches in height and will also achieve a diameter of about the same.

Utilizing Bugleweed

These plants make terrific borders and look incredible when mixed with other perennial flowers along an edge. Some gardeners have enjoyed the eye-pleasing effect of it when planted along stepping stones or inside rock gardens. They make a great companion to the creeping jenny in a shady part of a lawn.

Where To Plant Bugleweed

It will grow well in moist, fertile, well-drained soil but are able to tolerate clay and other less nutrient soils. The plant does have a creeping tendency and should not be planted near areas it will not be allowed to spread. Edging placed along a border where the plant should not go does well to stop the creeping.

When the blooms have reached a deadhead stage, a lawn mower works well to remove them. The plant will propagate through its cuttings, by being divided, and its seeds. The division can be performed any time of the season and should be done about every two years, so it does not become overcrowded.

The Bugleweed is a hardy plant and not susceptible to disease or pests. It may suffer from crown rot if grown in a hot and humid environment. It also does not do well in areas with poor air circulation.

Great bunch of rootings!! Timing of shipment is problematic

Received and all plants look great!! I worry that they were sent in December as I researched the plant after ordering and most said planting in winter is not ideal. I have great hope for the little guys….
