Ajuga ‘Catlin’s Giant’

April 26, 2010

I tell you what, Ajuga (Bugleweed) has come a loong way baby! Some of the new varieties are less like a standard groundcover and more like a featured blooming perennial! This variety, called 'Catlin's Giant', is really stunning come April. The huge blue bloom spikes reach almost a foot in height. Really stunning combined with a 'Bloodgood' Japanese maple, Hellebore 'Silver Lace' and a newly planted Hydrangea 'Lemon Daddy'. Great foliage color and contrast with the blue Ajuga flowers!
