Ajuga

Bugleweed

From the Latin abigo, to drive away, Ajuga was thought to drive away disease. To some of us that disease is winter; the remedy is Bugleweed, herald of spring, with its clear blue, white or pink flowers. The crisp, crinkled foliage hugs the ground for a quick-spreading, evergreen carpet. Use Ajuga en masse under a high canopy, or to soften the hard edges of walls and paving. A moisture-retentive soil is recommended.

<i>Ajuga reptans</i> ‘Catlin’s Giant’

‘Catlin’s Giant’ is twice the size (and has twice the impact) of most other Ajugas. Its deep blue flower spires rise 12 in. above large, shiny bronze leaves. Let this one loose in a rock garden, or plant it under Corylopsis for an overlapping, opulent display of blooms.

Blooms March–mid-May

Size: 12" high x 12" & spreading wide.

Hardy to zone 4.

We are so excited about Carl Dellatore & Rizzoli New York's new book "Garden Design Master Class", which will be available April 14th on Amazon. It's a compelling collection of essays from international garden designers. Digging Dog Nursery co-owner Deborah Whigham is honored to have her article on the Autumnal Garden included.
