Details

Fantastic tricolored foliage in shades of creamy-white, rose-burgundy, and dark green make this ajuga different than all the others. From mid to late spring, short spikes of blue flowers stand upright above the low, spreading foliage. The effect is stunning when planted en masse. 'Burgundy Glow' tends to spread more slowly than many other varieties in this species, making it suitable for use as an edging. It also fits nicely into rock gardens and mixed container plantings. Ajuga reptans is an evergreen groundcover that can grow in the shade of large trees where grass is hard to establish. Unlike many perennials that are grown only for their flowers, Bugleweed is prized for its attractive, colorful foliage that looks nice all year.
