perfect for pollinators
Also known as Bugle, a European native, this is a very attractive and quick-growing ground cover, which is part of the mint family. Great for low-maintenance banks and slopes, and even great in your flower beds and garden borders. The leaves of this variety are tones of silvery burgundy which deepens as the temperature cools, along with a shade of green - very attractive with small blue flower spikes in Spring to Summer which bees love.

Ajuga performs well in sun and shade, although it's leaves may scorch in particularly hot sites, so some respite from the hot afternoon sun is appreciated. It will also tolerate poor soils.

Ground cover plants respond well to fertile soil. Autumn is the best time for planting, as the soil is moist. At planting, apply a light application (one handful per square metre) of general-purpose fertiliser will set them up for a good growth spurt. A generous layer of fine bark mulch will also conserve moisture and prevent weeds.

Perennial ground covers are best divided every three to four years to rejuvenate them. Propagation by division is very easy, simply lift and separate off small rosettes of growth that have rooted stems.
