General Information: 

Ajuga, also known as bugleweed, is a versatile and resilient plant that can add beauty and texture to any garden. 

  • Ajuga reptans 'Burgundy Glow' features variegated leaves with shades of green, cream, and burgundy with blue-purple blooms.


Ajuga plants thrive in well-drained soil and prefer partial shade to full sun.

Ajuga prefers moist, well-drained soil. Amend the soil with organic matter, such as compost, to improve drainage.

Select a location that receives partial shade to full sun. Ajuga can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but it prefers slightly acidic to neutral pH levels.

Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball of the ajuga plant. Place the plant in the hole, making sure the crown is level with the soil surface. Backfill the hole and gently firm the soil around the plant.

Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering. Water deeply and thoroughly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between watering.

Ajuga is a low-maintenance plant. Remove any weeds that may compete with the ajuga for nutrients and water. Mulching around the plants can help conserve moisture and suppress weed growth.

Ajuga plants are generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, they can occasionally be affected by slugs, snails, or crown rot. Here are some tips to prevent and control these issues:

  • Slugs and snails: Use organic slug and snail control methods, such as beer traps or copper barriers, to protect your ajuga plants.
  • Crown rot: Avoid overwatering and ensure proper drainage to prevent crown rot. If you notice any signs of rot, remove the affected plant parts and improve the drainage in the area.
