Description
Here, Giant refers to the plants spread, which is from one to two feet, while growing only 4 to 6 tall.

All about Ajuga: Gardeners have a love or hate relationship with this easy to grow evergreen perennial. If you have moist shady areas youd like covered with a colorful blooming carpet, youll love it. If you let it spread into your lawn, youll probably hate it, since once it gets there, its hard to eliminate it.

Also called Carpet Bugleweed, Ajuga is a small, spreading member of the mint family (you can always tell mints by their square stems) with foliage and flowers in lovely colors. Many are bi-colored and/or variegated, and make a stunning show in the garden. Its perfect for moist, shady areas contained by retaining walls or other hard edging.
