Uses Notes: 

Trailing habit; this hardy versatile foliage plant is fabulous in the landscape and containers

Maintenance Notes: 

Fast growing plants spread by underground stems to create a great groundcover. Divide clumps when plantings get over crowded. Remove spent flowers, shears or even mowing on a high setting can quickly take care of the old flowers.

This more delicate Ajuga has a trailing habit, pretty variegated leaves, and
blue panicles. Blooming is scattered in fall and summer, but profuse in spring. The younger leaves are an intense pink, especially in cool temperatures. A hardy, versatile foliage plant for landscapes, beds, and containers.Deer-resistant
