AJUGA reptans 'Burgundy Glow'
Burgundy Glow Common Bugleweed, Common Bugleweed
Growing more slowly than other selections of common bugleweed, 'Burgundy Glow' also produces more colorful foliage. An evergreen, perennial groundcover with beautiful dark green leaves suffused with bronze and silver, this shade-loving plant is European in origin. Bugleweed spreads moderately by stolons to form a dense mat of showy vegetation. Diminutive spikes of deep blue flowers appear in late spring and early summer. In the chill of fall and winter, the leaves turn deeper bronze and the newer leaves turn pinkish.
The Burgundy Glow bugleweed tolerates poor soils but performs best in those that are fertile, evenly moist and well-drained. Good organic matter improves plant vigor. 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. Combine 'Burgundy Glow' with golden sedges for an eye-popping display or use as a massive groundcover among stones in a rockery or woodland.
