Ajuga reptans (Bugleweed)

 

Ajuga Reptans - Bugleweed : Do you hate pulling weeds? If you need a fast-spreading groundcover plant for natural weed control, look no further than TN Nursery's Ajuga reptans, commonly called bugleweed.

Ajuga reptans is a native plant to western Asia and Europe.

 

Ajuga reptans will display a show of color in the mid-spring. That's when you will see tall spikes of vibrant purple flowers that will pop against your landscaping. The plant's flowers are tubular, with two unequal lips. Flowers are clustered along the stems and may reach eight or ten inches tall. As the flowers fade in the heat, the foliage becomes more prominent.

 

Though its flowers are attractive, the foliage is the real star. During the warm days of the early to mid-spring, Ajuga reptans plants develop rich, dark green foliage. The greenery creates a mat of leaves, often forming attractive whorls. Later in the season, the leaves show off bronze and burgundy tones in the autumn months. 

Ajuga reptans Will Cover Your Ground Quickly

 

Ajuga reptans spreads quickly. Each plant can extend as far as eighteen inches wide. The spread of bugleweed is similar to grass--it sends out several small stems that take root nearby and grow new plants. The significant and rapid growth of these new groundcover plants means you can quickly fill in a gardening bed. Once the bugleweed takes over, your weeds will be but a distant memory.

 

Although Ajuga reptans prefers shady to semi-shade growing conditions, it is a vigorous and resilient plant that can adapt to sunshine in most growing zones.

 

This plant is also relatively maintenance-free, as long as you plant it in a spot with reasonably good drainage. The plant might require minimal care, such as cutting back runners two or three times a year and cutting the flower spikes after they finish their show of blooms.

 

This groundcover plant also tolerates moist to moderately dry soil and has a centralized root system. Bugleweed is unfussy and grows in most soil conditions without much help from the gardener--this makes Ajuga reptans an ideal garden solution for anyone who wants a plant that will take over, choke out weeds, and remain carefree and beautiful for a long season.

 

 Ajuga reptans is available online at TN Nursery
