BURGUNDY GLOW AJUGA

 

Burgundy Glow Ajuga

Ajuga has tiny bluish purple flower spires that show up in early April. A great choice for woodland areas or sunny areas with plenty of water. The one above and to the right is located at the base of a well used water faucet. It gets sun most of the day which helps bring out the intense coloring. Darker leaves are common in colder, shadier locations.

We like the way it softens the edge of this stone. It won't grow out much further onto the stone because the stone is dry and the stems need moist soil to root in. Give it moist soil and it just keeps spreading.

The ground cover Santa Barbara Daisy commingles with Ajuga Burgundy Glow and both bloom at the same time.

Both Santa Barbara Daisy and Burgundy Glow can take light foot traffic. Burgundy Glow Ajuga is a dense ground cover while Santa Barbara Daisy is taller and more airy. Both are spectacular.

This plant is often available in plug trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant.  They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by an inch. Check here to see if Burgundy Glow Ajuga Plug Trays are available.
