Description

Ajuga Bugleweed is also Lycopsus Americanus is a Fast Growing Herbaceous Perennial

The Ajuga Bugleweed Plant-Ajuga reptans is often called Ajuga or bugleweed. This herbaceous perennial is a fast-growing member of the mint family, known to spread quick enough via runners. The reptans part of its Latin name means "to creep." It is a naturalized North American plant that was introduced from several places in Europe and Asia.

Ajuga Bugleweed is an Excellent Ground Cover that Spreads into Dense Mats of Lovely Foliage

Bugleweed plants grow well in Hardiness Zones 3 through 10. They are tolerant of almost any soil type, though they prefer slightly acidic. Fully grown plants stand 6" to 8" high; flower stalks can grow to 12". Each plant may spread up to 12", they quickly form mats, especially in shaded areas beneath other trees and shrubs. The Ajuga bugleweed is hardy enough to grow beneath black walnut trees. The growth speed of the Ajuga bugleweed can be controlled by where they are planted. Plants in shadier areas tend to grow faster than those in sunnier regions. The bugleweed is best planted in rock gardens, containers, edged beds, or wide-open spaces that quickly need ground cover. They lend themselves well to erosion control. It would help if you did not plant them near any more tiny hardy flowers at home as they may choke them out. Bugleweeds should be periodically divided and thinned, at minimum every third year. They flower through the spring and summer, generally beginning in May or June. Pinching off runners helps with this, too.

Bugleweed flowers are blue, purple, or white, though there is at least one cultivar with pink flowers. Other cultivar strains have leaves that are multi-colored or variegated. Beyond thinning, the Ajuga Bugleweed is relatively low-maintenance. It needs no extra fertilizer and is worry-free against most garden pests. However, in areas of high humidity, care should be taken to ensure appropriately drained soil to prevent southern rot.

Ajuga Bugleweed is deer and rabbit resistant.

The botanical name of Ajuga reptans or common bugleweed tells much about its habits, as reptans means creeping. It can take a lawn for people who don't want to do the work that keeps a garden looking green and luxuriant throughout the growing season. Though it keeps down the weeds, bugleweed can be a bit aggressive, and it's a good idea to divide the plants between the spring or the fall. It can propagate through runners that root into the soil.

Besides its beautiful flowers, bugleweed's foliage also comes in shades of green, purple, bronze, or creamy white with splotches of dark pink. In some varieties, the foliage is evergreen or semi-evergreen. Ajuga Bugleweed Plants grow in whorls and attract bees in the late spring and early summer. Ajuga Bugleweed Plant
