Ajuga reptans ‘Catlin’s Giant’


Giant Carpet Bugle

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.030.220


Also known as Bugleweed, there are many selections, used widely as groundcovers for shady gardens. This is one of the largest-growing varieties, forming a vigorous mound of deep bronzy-red spinach-like leaves. Spikes of blue flowers are attractive in spring. Excellent for edging. Combines beautifully with spring flowering bulbs, particularly yellow tulips or daffodils. Plants prefer a rich, moist soil, but will tolerate short periods of summer drought. Easily divided in spring or early fall. An especially good selection for containers and mixed tubs. Evergreen.
