& Maintenance Tips

The Ajuga prefers moist soil  but will do well in almost any soil as long as it is well drained. It can even withstand near drought conditions. It prefers shade, but in full sun, the plant will still prosper, but may produce smaller leaves. For best results, the Ajuga should be planted in the Spring. Space 12-15” apart and not too deep! Ajuga works very well in containers too!
