'Burgundy Glow' is a big favorite because of the great color it brings to shady spots--foliage is a collage of greens, pinks and creams. Flowers are deep blue.
An impressive groundcover, Ajuga is masterful at filling in spaces where other plants struggle to grow – even under Black Walnut trees. Its glossy, colorful foliage forms rosettes that stay close to the ground, creating a dense carpet that suppresses weeds and controls erosion. In summer, delightful flower spikes attract pollinators and add beauty to the summer landscape. Low-maintenance plants do not need trimming or deadheading. Ajuga, also called Bugleweed, is deer and rabbit-resistant, and readily adapts to a variety of conditions. Ajuga can be planted in full sun, part sun, and full shade locations, and it tolerates a wide range of soils, although it can be susceptible to root rot in very wet sites. It spreads by forming offshoots (stolons) that reach away from the plant, forming nodes and sending down roots where they touch the ground. Ajuga reptans is native to Europe, northern Africa, and southwestern Asia. Use this lovely, vigorous grower to your advantage!
