Bugleweed: A Field Guide

Bugleweed (Ajuga) is a trustworthy ground cover. It quickly spreads, is attractive year round, smothers weeds, and handles sun and shade.

A fast-growing perennial, bugleweed forms a dense mat that prevents weeds from taking control. Plant ajuga under trees or shrubs to add texture and color in shady areas.

A solution to those tricky dappled-sun areas of the garden, Ajuga performs like an adaptable friend. uck six-packs of Ajuga between pavers, into rock walls, or in the front row of perennial beds, to create an especially charming backdrop in woodland, cottage, and Asian gardens.
