Ajuga - Burgundy Glow
Foliage Color All Year
The Ajuga ‘Burgundy Glow’, Ajuga reptans, is a useful ground cover with short spikes of blue flowers.
This Ajuga is one of the most popular, forming striking mounds of leaves dappled in green, pink and cream. During the wintertime, Ajuga ‘Burgundy Glow’ develops rich bronze and burgundy tones.
The flowers appear in late spring on 6” spikes with a plant spread of 12-18”. ‘Burgundy Glow’ should be planted 6-9” apart for a beautiful ground cover.
Ajuga ‘Burgundy Glow’ will do best in a shaded area but will adapt to morning sun. (The foliage colors will be more vivid with morning sun.)
It prefers moist soil with a good drainage but will tolerate moderately dry areas. It does not do well in soggy conditions.
This Ajuga looks great in rock gardens, as a border plants, in mass plantings and is great for preventing erosion.
It is relatively carefree; however, it can be invasive.
Butterflies and hummingbirds are definitely attracted to Ajuga. It is also deer resistant and a low allergen.
If you are looking for a perennial ground cover to exceed in a hard to grow shady area, Ajuga is the way to go!
