Ajuga is a great groundcover for creating color in moist shade
Ajuga, also known as "Carpet Bugleweed," is a small, spreading evergreen plant that many gardeners love. Its beauty lies in its waxy, weed-suppressing foliage that spreads eagerly, even in the deep shade where grass won't grow. Ajuga is available in a range of colors and grows to be 6 -12" in height, making it an ideal ground cover for creating a "blooming carpet". Best of all, Ajuga is deer resistant and low-maintenance, and can even be used for erosion control.
