Ajuga genevensis ‘Pink Beauty’

Carpet Bugle

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.030.350

Also known as Bugleweed, this selection is much more clumping in habit than the more common groundcover types. Plants form a mound of deep green leaves, bearing showy spikes of soft pink flowers in mid to late spring. Evergreen in most regions. Not the best choice for extremely dry shade conditions, like under maple or evergreen trees. Will perform well in tubs or mixed containers. Easily divided in spring or early fall. The mounding habit makes this suitable to both the border or rock garden. Excellent for combining with spring-flowering bulbs.
