Ajuga or Bugleweed is a part sun to full shade groundcover that spreads rather quickly and densely. Flowers emerge in mid- late spring in various shades of purple or pink depending on variety. Some foliage may be variegated or deep purple and grow on average 8-12" tall. Great for difficult areas such as slopes or areas where lawn wont fill in and can make a beautiful display when in bloom.
