Ajuga (Carpet Bugleweed)

Example of approximately what these plants look like when shipped. See the eighth photograph of any plant to see a photo of what it looks like when shipped.
Ajuga reptans (AKA Carpet Bugleweed, Creeping Bugleweed, Creeping Carpet Bugle, Sicklewort, and Carpenter’s Herb) offers such striking, texturally rich foliage in a broad range of colors including an almost black that gardeners are constantly seeking this perennial groundcover.

An absolute visual treat, you'll be thrilled using Ajugas as a substitute for turf grass (especially under trees such as walnut where grasses refuse to grow and mowing over tree roots is dangerous). Vibrant and generous spring flower spikes in a range of lilac tones promise to attract butterflies.

Willing to tolerate infrequent foot traffic, you simply can't beat the beauty and hardiness of our Ajugas. We love using Ajuga as a complete groundcover in gardens because it replaces the need for mulches. It's pretty likely you'll want more than one type giving your garden vivid color variety.
