Ajuga - Bronze Beauty
Tidy Bronze Leaves on Hardy Groundcover
The Ajuga ‘Bronze Beauty’, Ajuga reptans, is a useful ground cover with short spikes of blue flowers.
The foliage is evergreen in most regions and has an attractive bronzy-brown shade that quickly forms a low carpet of medium-sized, shiny, rounded leaves. One plant can multiply to cover 12"-18"!
"Bronze Beauty’ will perform well in tubs or mixed containers and makes a beautiful ground cover. The blue flowers appear in late spring on 4” spikes.
Ajuga ‘Bronze Beauty’ will do best in a shaded area but will adapt to morning sun, the foliage colors will be more vivid with morning sun.
Bronze Beauty’s prefer moist soil with a good drainage but will tolerate moderately dry areas. Do avoid soggy conditions. This Ajuga looks great in rock gardens, as a border plants and mass plantings.
Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to Ajuga, not to mention being deer resistant and a low allergen.
If one is looking for a perennial ground cover to exceed in a hard to grow shady area, Ajuga is the way to go.
