    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

    • Ground cover. This little guy comes back in the spring double! It spreads on the horizontal and vertical (with purple/blue stalks.) Leaves look like a beautiful watercolor painting.
