Using Ajuga

Ajugas look best in borders and rock gardens. Try planting them between steppingstones, or anywhere that grass won't grow. ‘Giant Green’ looks stunning with pale yellow daffodils and other spring bulbs. Types of ajuga with multi-colored leaves are somewhat better used as accents rather than for covering large areas. They do not blend so well with other plants. Like most groundcovers, ajuga makes a good living mulch under shrubs where it discourages weeds and protects soil. Ajugas will grow in tubs or large clay pots on a shaded porch or patio. They are also good plants for a windowbox.
