The Ajuga 'Bronze Beauty', Ajuga reptans, is a useful ground cover with short spikes of blue flowers. The foliage is evergreen in most regions and has an attractive bronzy-brown shade that quickly forms a low carpet of medium-sized rounded leaves. 'Bronze Beauty' will perform well in tubs or mixed containers and makes a beautiful ground cover. The flowers appear in late spring on 4' spikes and spreads of 12-18'. Ajuga 'Bronze Beauty' will do best in a shaded area but will adapt to morning sun, the foliage colors will be more vivid with morning sun. Bronze Beautys prefer moist soil with a good drainage but will tolerate moderately dry areas. Do avoid soggy conditions. This Ajuga looks great in rock gardens, as a border plants and mass plantings. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to Ajuga, not to mention being deer resistant and a low allergen.
