  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A useful plant for the edge of a shady border, ajuga also makes good groundcover as it soon knits together to form an evergreen carpet. This one has multi-coloured, evergreen foliage with wine red splashes and cream margins and dense, upright spires of deep blue flowers in spring. Tolerates sun or shade and poor soils, but does not like to dry out.

  • Garden care: To rejuvenate and minimise congestion, lift and divide clumps in late autumn or early spring every two years.

    I bought 6 plugs three years ago and planted them in a lightly shaded area with excellent humus rich loamy soil, none appeared to thrive and all turned in to soup pretty quickly. Crocus refunded the purchase. I bought 6 more plants in February as I wanted to persevere as they would be ideal to fill gaps in the garden. I planted three in the same place I had tried before and three in full sun ( a bit of a joke in Aberdeen ;-), within a month the ones planted in the shade had turned a nasty off green colour and were clearly sick, the three planted in full sun have doubled in size and are flowering. I dug up the three sick plants and transplanted them in to full sun, still not 100% but they are recovering their colour slowly are growing and are starting to flower..... I would say a good buy consider carefully where you plan to plant them. I realise full sun is a different proposition in South Devon to North East Scotland.
