Ajuga 'Burgundy Glow' - 3.5 inch Pots (Minimum Quantity: 25 Plants)
Ajuga 'Burgundy Glow' is one of our favorite varieties. Deep blue flower spikes in spring are held above variegated foliage of green, burgundy shades, and white. The dense mat suppresses weeds, and serves as an effective lawn substitute. We like it planted in borders, beneath taller perennials, in containers and rock gardens.
Ajuga symbolizes cheerfulness in "the language of flowers". One can understand why; ajuga's bright blue flowers definitely evoke that emotion.
Ajuga is sometimes included in edible gardens. The leaves are used in salads. If your ajuga spreads too far, eat it.
Historically, ajuga has been used as a treatment for health conditions such as coughing, various respiratory disorders, wound dressings and nosebleed, treatment of mouth sores, anxiety, and heart palpitations, among others. Always seek advice and supervision from a professional before using a plant medicinally.
Burgundy Glow, like other ajugas, is a pollinator-friendly plant and attracts bees.
