Ajuga 'Bronze Beauty' features deep blue flowers above bronze-green foliage. It's an excellent spreading groundcover, forming a dense mat in sun or shade. Plant it around shrubs, under trees, along borders, in rock gardens, and as a lawn substitute.

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.

Bronze Beauties

My plants arrived quickly and in beautiful health. I used them to fill in a bed with a few bare spots and they all took quickly. I think my bare spots will be gone by the end of summer.
