Ajuga reptans

Ajuga reptans
'Burgundy Glow'
The leaves are purple-tinged throughout the year, but get even darker in winter

Common name bugleweed
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers blue
Size 4"
Light shade-sun
Cultural notes not fussy

Excellent evergreen groundcover, blooms early-mid spring. The popular 'Burgundy Glow' cultivar can spread rapidly - not a problem in the garden areas where we keep it, but it's been reported to colonize into lawns in other gardens. Recently, we acquired a specimen named 'Chocolate Chip'. Even though we have more of our 'Burgundy Glow' than we know what to do with, we were charmed by the small slender leaves of the new cultivar.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
