Known as common bugleweed, this evergreen, perennial groundcover adds interest to shady areas. These European natives spread rapidly by stolons to form a dense carpet of vegetation. Spikes of pretty dark to medium blue flowers appear in late spring and early summer. The common form has dark green foliage, but there are many cultivars with a variety of different foliage and flower color combinations. Two such selections are the bronze and green-leaved 'Bronze Beauty' and the very low growing, pink-flowered 'Pink Elf.' Plants are tolerant of 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.
