Ajuga Bronze Beauty - 6 Plugs - May 2023

Last week, I shared the 14 plugs of Ajuga Chocolate Chip that I planted around the backyard as groundcover near the border of some of the beds.  In that post, I talked about how I had grown in my appreciation of Ajuga Chocolate Chip (and groundcover writ large).  I came across it first from Erin the Impatient Gardener and her talk with Roy Diblik.  I bought the first few containers last Fall.  

I recently came across a second Ajuga variety:  Bronze Beauty.  Same deal from Home Depot:  Six-pack of them.  Of note, this Bronze Beauty has a purple handle - and says it is designed for SHADE.  

I decided to give it a try in two different situations:  First...tucked in between (and at the feet) of some established hostas.  See below for those hostas and Ajuga Bronze Beauty together:

And, I put the other three right along the fire pit metal border - you can see those below.  

#17 on my to-do list was to 'keep going with groundcover' - and I now have put in 20 Ajuga plants.  Pretty good start for Spring, especially when I know that I'll plant more this Summer and Fall.
