Spreading more slowly than typical Ajuga and cherished for its elegant foliage. The neat carpet of rounded leaves is splashed with creamy yellow and green; rose tones appear in cooler weather. Short spikes of blue flowers in late spring add to the glowing display.

Ajuga are extremely hardy groundcovers that form a dense carpet-like mat. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.
