Light Colored Foliage in a Hardy Groundcover

Dixie Chip Bugleweed, Ajuga 'Dixie Chip', has green, cream, and rose-purple variegated narrow leaved foliage that will create a spectacular display for your garden when planted in mass.

In mid to late spring, violet blue flowers appear above the low spreading foliage. Ajuga 'Dixie Chip' is a petite variegated Ajuga.

It forms a tight habit, making it useful for erosion control on slopes and also as a weed suppressing ground cover for the landscape. Ajuga 'Dixie Chip' will do best in a shaded area but will adapt to morning sun. It prefers moist soil with a good drainage but will tolerate moderately dry areas.

Do avoid soggy conditions. Ajuga 'Dixie Chip' looks great in rock gardens, as a border plants, in mass plantings and is great for preventing erosion.

Butterflies and hummingbirds are defiantly attracted to Ajuga 'Dixie Chip', not to mention being deer and rabbit 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!

  • Narrow Light-Colored Variegated Foliage
  • Drought and Heat Tolerant
  • Deer and Rabbit Resistant Groundcover
