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.
