Ajuga 'Blueberry Muffin'

Ajuga reptans

Ajuga is prized for its attractive, midnight-dark foliage, rich blue blooms! Sun or Shade!

Ajuga has glossy, bronze-purple foliage.  Spreads by stolons with vigor.  Bloom's Blue on 2"-3" tall flower spikes putting on a brilliant show in Spring.  Plants can be mowed on high to remove spent flowers.  Ajuga thrives in humusy soil and will grow fine in average, well-drained soil.  Will tolerate occasional dry soil but prefers regular watering.  Plant in areas with good air circulation in hot, humid climates to prevent crown rot.  

Good for large areas as ground cover, on slopes and edges of pathways as well as rock gardens and beds.  Careful using it near grass edges where it may invade the lawn. 

Stunning when planted in mass.
