Special Attributes

Blueberry Muffin is an extremely vigorous small leaved Ajuga with dark new leaves and blueberry-blue flowers that rise above the foliage on tall, eight inch spikes. The thicher leaves of this variety are more weather resistant than other varieties. Can be grown in full sun even in the South provided the soil stays consistently moist.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a carpet-like patch to 3 to 4 inches tall and spreading 18 inches or more, Blueberry Muffin Ajuga is a wonderful choice for use as a colorful groundcover in shady to partially shaded areas. With consistently moist soil this variety will tolerate full sun in the South. Also ideal for use as a spreading border along paths and walkways, as a groundcover to fill in around shrubs in home foundation plantings and woodland areas, as a gap and crevice filler between pavers and stones, as an underplanting for shrubs and trees, tucked around boulders in rock gardens, as a soil cover in combination container gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  12-18 inches apart for mass plantings and solid borders

Cultural Preferences

When planted right and in the right spot, Blueberry Muffin Ajuga is easy to grow. It adapts to most soil types and likes shade to part shade. With consistently moist soil it will tolerate full sun, even in the South. It prefers a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility. Overly dry soils will require supplemental irrigation. As with many other plants, a constantly soggy or wet soil can be problematic.
