Quick Overview:

Ajuga is one of the best known and most useful groundcovers, suiting many different situations and color schemes.  Plants spread by runners and soon create a thick groundcover carpet of foliage.  ‘Princess Nadia’ is a reblooming Ajuga that displays intense purple-blue flowers in early spring and then again in summer.  When the plant is not in bloom, the tri-colored foliage in cream, green and pink adds color.  Easy to maintain.

Description

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. 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.
