USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

4-6" tall x 12-18" wide. Ajuga, also called bugleweed, provides dramatic, textural groundcover for high profile areas of the garden. Rich color and seasonal blooms are best appreciated up close. Flowers stand six inches tall, are good for cutting, and attract bees and butterflies. Ajuga tolerates light foot traffic and can be tucked between stepping stones or used to soften the edges of flagstone paths. Plants also perform well in containers and large tubs. Widely adaptable to all but very wet locations, ajuga spreads best in moist soils, but tolerates dry conditions. Ajuga’s spreading habit provides good erosion control for shady sites where other plants can be hard to establish. Plants are evergreen in southern regions of its range. Spent flowers can be removed if desired using shears or a string trimmer. Deer and rabbit resistant.
