Buy Ajuga reptans 'Burgundy Glow' bugle: A useful plant for the edge of a shady border

  • 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.

Does exactly as described - very pretty


West midlands


Wonderful service, always!


We've bought plants and flowers serval times from crocus and never been disappointed the high quality service we've received

Beautiful plant but didn't do well in my garden


I've seen this plant in neighbouring gardens and it is beautiful. Unfortunately all of the plants died but I'll try again at a later stage.




Healthy plants


Survived the drought and spreading well


East Midlands


Perfect Ground Cover


I use this as ground cover - given the right conditions it can spread rather rapidly. It was planted out as a minute young plant about a year ago and after producing several very attractive pale blue flowers in May, it is now considerably more widespread. The variegated foliage is most attractive, with strong shades of Burgundy red mixed in.

seems to do better in full sun


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.




I would recommend this plant


Very good for ground cover in a shady area. Spreads quickly.

Planted ajuga burgundy glow in April and it has grown well over the summer despite the harsh conditions. However it has now started to get brown leaves which are dropping off. Can I shred the stems of the leave to tidy the plant up? Or even cut the stems back where the leaves have died? Thanks helen

I am not sure what you mean by shredding the stems, however if some of the leaves have died back, then you can remove them to tidy the plant up.
