Ajuga is a mat-forming plant related to the wild bugle. The rosette-like foliage is robust, evergreen and deep purple in colour, and makes a good background to the upright spikes of blue flowers, produced in spring. Bugle is very versatile, equally at home as ground cover under trees or shrubs as in a sunny flower border, and even in containers. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
