Ajuga reptans ‘Bronze Beauty’

Bronze Beauty Carpet Bugle (also called Blue Bugle, Bugleherb, Bugleweed, Carpetweed, Common Bugle, and Burgandy Lace) is a low growing semi-evergreen perennial ground cover that produces attractive 8-10 inch spikes bearing purple-blue flowers throughout April and May. Leaves bronze in color with purple highlights and radiate from the plant crown. Commonly used and referred to as a ‘ground cover’, Bronze Beauty Carpet Bugle is slowly invasive and most often used to cover bare places of ground and is dense in its nature of growth. This plant can grow in shade to full sun which makes it ideal for filling large areas like banks and hillsides. Originally native to Europe and North Africa, Ajuga reptans has a habit of choking out competing plants and weeds. Bronze Beauty Carpet Bugle is excellent in preventing soil erosion. The ground cover also makes a great under-planting for a number of other plants and trees. Do not use it as an edging for the lawn, as it will easily spread into the grass. More planting instruction can also be found at boydnursery.net/planting/.
