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.
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.
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.
