Ajuga reptans 'Burgundy Glow' – Leaves are burgundy, pink, creamy white and green. Slightly less hardy.

CULTIVATION

Ajugas prefer a well drained acidic loam soil. They can tolerate heavier soils to some extent provided drainage is adequate. With shallow roots, ajugas will need some extra water in times of drought. Ajugas prefer some light to moderate shade in hotter climates. Generally ajugas require very little maintenance (just some periodic trimming to keep them in bounds).
Plant 12 to 18" apart.


USES

Ajugas are generally used as a lawn substitute in small areas, for borders in the front of shrubbery, or as an accent plant.
