Ajuga is a beautiful plant that has a glossy appearance and adds a lush look to garden and landscape areas.
Ajuga is a wonderful ground cover and adds stunning color when the flowers are in bloom. The plant showcases small flower stalks that can transform a garden space. Ajuga flowers are blue, light purple, white, or pink, and have long rounded petals. The vivid hue of the flowers stands out against the leaves, especially on dark-leaved Ajuga. The flowers grow in clusters and are hermaphrodite. This plant does very well in well-drained soil and often blooms during the latter part of spring or in early summer. Ajuga plants grow best in hardiness zones 3-9.
The foliage of the Ajuga is a pronounced shade of green -- some plants display light green leaves and other Ajuga flaunt deep green leaves with shades of purple. The plant is ideal for accenting other flowers in your garden or patio space. You can use Ajuga for bordering walkways and driveways. If you want the plants to have a dramatic effect, it's best to plant the Ajuga in groups.
Ajuga plants are low-maintenance, so it's the perfect choice for the beginning gardener.
The plant is perennial and has a rich history of being used for medicinal purposes. At full maturity, Ajuga can reach between 5 and 50 centimeters and is tolerant of drought. It's best to plant the Ajuga in areas that have partial shade and damp soil. However, Ajuga does grow in full sun as well, as long as the soil is moist. The plant grows naturally in damp fields and near the edge of forests. To make the Ajuga part of your visually appealing landscape, you can pair the plant with the hummingbird plant since the blooms of both plants provide a color contrast that immediately catches the eye.
