Product Description

Bronze Beauty Ajuga is a low growing evergreen perennial 6-10 in (15.2-25.4 cm) tall which forms a dense matlike groundcover as it spreads along underground stolons. As is typical of herbaceous plants in the mint family, ajuga has square stems and opposite or whorled leaves. The basal leaves are dark green and oblong or spoon shaped, 3-5 in (7.6-12.7 cm) long and 1-2 in (2.5-5.1 cm) wide; stem leaves are a little smaller. The flowers (usually blue or purplish) are about 1/2 in (1.3 cm) long and borne in whorls on erect spikes 6-10 in (15.2-25.4 cm) tall. They are typical mint flowers: tubular with two unequal lips. Location: Bronze Beauty Ajuga is native to Europe, western Asia and Iran. It has escaped cultivation and become naturalized in some parts of the northeastern and northcentral U.S. Bronze Beauty Ajuga grows rapidly even in poor, heavy soils. Grow Ajuga in partial shade to full shade. Ajuga can tolerate morning or late afternoon sun, but the leaves will surely scorch if they are exposed to full midday sun.Moisture: Ajuga needs moist conditions. It does best in fairly well drained soils with frequent watering.Hardiness: USDA Zones 3 - 9. Propagation: Ajuga is easily propagated by separating the little plants that arise from the spreading stolons. This can be done any time of year. Ajuga also can be started from cuttings in summer. Larger areas can be seeded with Ajuga. Bronze Beauty Ajuga makes a showy groundcover in moist, shady areas of the landscape. It grows well in areas too shady for grass. Under ideal growing conditions Ajuga will spread rapidly from its underground runners. It forms such a dense mat that weeds cannot grow through it.

    Ajuga order

    Posted by Donna Shelton on Jun 5th 2020

    I was unable to find ajuga locally, so ordered online with fairly low expectations. I was surprised by the arrival of lush, fresh well watered plants that immediately thrived when planted. I'll not hesitate to order again!

    My plants arrived very quickly and were packaged expertly. The plants are in excellent shape and are already in the ground and taking off. Very happy with my purchase.

    Health & Well Rooted

    I used to get these in peat pots and was surprised when they arrived in a large plastic flat. As it turned out, they were easier to plant this way. They came out easily and had lots of roots. It was easier to tease out the roots and plant them. I have bought Bronze Ajuga from Hirt’s three times and they have always thrived. The ones I planted last year blossomed profusely and spread to fill in the space between plants. I thought they only bloomed once in the spring, but they have started to bloom again. All my neighbors commented on how beautiful they are. I have a steep bank at the front of my yard and despite heavy rains they have stopped erosion. I plan to eventually plant some on the bank at the back of my property.
