Ajuga (also known as Bugleweed) is a perennial landscape plant that has a tight mounding habit of about 6 to 8 inches tall. Ajuga are commonly used as ground covers due to their quick growth and ability to add color to a large area. They are also great in combination planting. The Ajuga that we carry are all very cold-hardy.


Growing Tips

To achieve the best results with Ajuga, use a well-drained soil in partial shade with light feed (150 ppm nitrogen). Plant 1 plug per 4in pot. Watch for aphids and spider mites. Root rot diseases can also be a problem. Once established, Ajuga are very easy to care for. In a landscape environment Ajuga require little more than rain water to do well.

Flowering

Ajuga are not known for their flowers.

Pinching

Chocolate Chip is a spreading plant and will probably not require pinching. A light pinch might become necessary to shape the plant for your final needs.

Spacing

Ajuga can be grown pot tight in 1801s or 4 inch pots.

Height Control

While Ajuga are responsive to plant growth regulators, you usually do not need them because the plants are not prone to stretch and get tall.

Pests

Whiteflies and possibly aphids are the biggest pest problems with Ajuga.

Disease

Chocolate Chip are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Chocolate Chip Liners

  1. We recommend planting 1 starter plant per 4 inch pot or 1801. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.
  2. Pinching is not required.

Rooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families. These rooted starter plants will arrive ready to be transplanted in to your final container. If they are to be used in a landscape application, you will need to establish them in a 4 inch pot or an 1801 before planting outside.
