Ajuga – Bugle

An inconspicuous, creeping perennial, which in severe winters may be affected by frost. In dry soil it is also subject to greenfly.

Situation:

Almost exclusively as ground cover, for which it is very suitable. Its fairly profuse flowering is a great advantage.

Soil:

Undemanding as to soil; satisfied with a certain amount of humus and manure.

Propagation:

As it produces runners, the plant can be divided easily. This is preferably done in spring.

Ajuga reptans: Creeper, to 20 cm high; veined, oval green leaves; blue flowers. Well known garden varieties are ‘Rubra’, with dark-brown foliage; ‘Multicolor’ with yellow, rose-pink and brown blotched leaves; and ‘Variegata’ which has white-edged foliage.
