    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 large, glossy, bronze-purple leaves with dense, upright spires of purple spring flowers. This variety is perfect for covering large areas since it has bigger leaves and is particularly vigourous. It also copes well with sun 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.
