Common name: Bugle
Ajuga is an evergreen ground-cover or rockery plant that is often grown more for its variegated leaves, than its flowers.
The flowers appear in June/July in a wide range of colours e.g. blue, pink, purple, white and many bi-colours.
It originates from the Middle East and Asia, and grows to around 150-300mm (6”-12”) high.
In the Rockery
New plants can be planted out in any moist partially shaded situation at any time, providing the soil conditions allow.
However, early in the season is the best time as this will allow the plants time to develop before the onset of winter.
Never let them dry out.
Cut them back after flowering to maintain a tidy clump/s
Divide or take tip cuttings at any time between Weeks 20 and 40.
