Quick Overview:

An extremely vigorous small-leaved groundcover with dark new leaves and blueberry-blue flowers on eight inch spikes. A much faster and stronger grower than A. 'Chocolate Chip'. Leaves are thicker and more weather resistant.

Details

Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, humusy soils with good drainage, but tolerates moderately dry ones. Will grow in full shade, but best foliage color is in sunny locations (at least 3-4 hours of sun per day). Divide when clumps become overcrowded. A fast-growing plant which will spread in the garden by stolons to form an attractive, low-growing ground cover. Not as aggressive as many of the other ajugas, however. Larger plantings may be mowed on a high mower setting to remove spent flower spikes and to tidy the appearance of the planting. Space plants 6-9" apart for quick cover.
