Gardeners' Notes:

This performs well as a spreading groundcover. Unlike the dark ajuga though, it looks pretty bad in the coldest winter months yet rebounds quickly for spring blooms.

Excellent foliage plant, easy to grow in part shade. Adds brightness to a shady area.

I have this placed on the southeast/east side of my house so far...and it has multiplied rapidly into a lovely groundcover! It has small purple blooms that grow upright, (somewhat resembling the shape & size of a coleus flower.)

It's also easy to split; simply pull one of the trailing babies and keep it a watered well at first.

The foliage seems nice, but has been impossible for me to grow. I have had several plants and all died no matter how much or little care I gave them.
