Ajuga reptans (Bugleherb)

Growing Requirements 

  • Ajugas bloom from early spring to mid-July, with the most excellent bloom times in May and June.
  • When fully bloomed, most varieties of Ajuga barely reach a height of 6-9 inches.
  • Ajuga spreads via runners and forms a dense carpet of leaves as it grows along the ground.
  • Because of its vast root system, Ajuga is an excellent plant for erosion management!
  • Ajugas are members of the mint family, and their fast growth rate, like that of other mints, can cause difficulties. 
  • If the invasive nature of Ajuga is a concern, some kind of edging material may be required to keep it within boundaries.
  • Bugleweed may be cultivated in every light condition, from full sun to complete shade.
  • When planted in whole light, the leaves will be smaller, but the plant will produce more flower spikes.
  • Ajuga loves wet soil yet can withstand drought rather well.

Fertilizer
