Ajuga reptans

It is rare to find a ground-cover plant that flourishes in both sun and shade, but this genus has one commonly cultivated species, which does just that. Ajuga reptans has rosettes of dark red/green leaves spread by runners, and short spikes of deep blue flowers.

Ajuga reptans is the most usual form, with dark foliage, particularly in places where it gets reasonably good light. In thse places it will also produce the lovely blue flowers more abundantly.
