Last month, I posted details of my 3rd Ajuga variety: Burgundy Glow. I found one at Lowe's and tucked it into the IB2DWs bed near the driveway . In that post , I looked at the tri-color foliage and how it is a little bit slower-grower than 'Chocolate Chip'. Well...it tuns out that I'm (now) planting a second one. That was a gift of sorts. Back earlier this Summer, the kids made Fairy Gardens. One of the plants that one of the girls bought - but LEFT IN THE CONTAINER - is an Ajuga Burgundy Glow. Here below are a few photos - including how this thing had roots coming out the bottom big-time: I carefully peeled the container away and decided to stick it into the backyard - right off the patio, by the screened porch door - hoping it will fill in the space and hug the patio. See below for the size: More groundcover. More, indeed. I'm posting this in November 2023, but I did this dividing and transplanting in mid-October 2023.
