In "the language of flowers", ajuga symbolizes cheerfulness. Ajuga's bright blue flowers certainly evoke that emotion.
Ajuga is sometimes included in edible gardens, the leaves being used in salads. This would be an excellent means of controlling it if your ajuga spreads further than you expect.
Ajuga has been used as a folk remedy for several conditions such as respiratory disorders, wound dressing, treatment of mouth ulcers, sleeplessness, and heart palpitations, to name a few. Definitely seek advice and supervision from a professional before using a plant medicinally.
Bronze Beauty, like other ajugas, is a pollinator-friendly plant and attracts bees.
