Ajuga Plants

The Ajuga Plant is the garden's jack of all trades. It is a semi-evergreen, creeping perennial that does well in shade or sun, in dry or moist soils. The only place it doesn't perform well is in wet soil. Its short stature and slow spread make it the perfect border plant for beds or walkways. The Ajuga plant is ideal for erosion control and ground cover.


Ajuga, pronounced ah-JEW-gah, also commonly called Bugleweed, produces spikes of flowers in late spring. It is drought tolerant, deer resistant, and attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Bugleweed plants should be thinned out every 2 to 3 years to improve air circulation, avoid overcrowding and keep the bed alive and well.
