Bronze Beauty Common Bugleweed, Common Bugleweed
Bronze beauty common bugleweed is an evergreen, perennial groundcover with beautiful bronze and dark green foliage. This shade-loving plant is European in origin and spreads rapidly by stolons to form a dense carpet of showy vegetation. Spikes of pretty dark violet-blue flowers appear in late spring and early summer. Plants will tolerate poor soils but perform best in those that are evenly moist and well drained. Divide plantings every two to three years to prevent overcrowding and possible disease problems. Common bugleweed is by far one of the best groundcovers for shade. Beauty bugleweed and mophead sedges look appealing when combined together.
