Catlin's Giant Ajuga
Ajuga reptans 'Catlin's Giant'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 3a-9b  Find Your Zone



Special Attributes

Catlin's Giant Ajuga, also called Bugleweed, sports the largest leaves and tallest flowers of any Ajuga variety we grow and is the fastest spreader. The large, deep purple leaves of Catlins Giant contrast nicely with other plants in shady to partially shaded areas of the garden, providing an almost tropical effect. The spikes of violet color flowers that rise well above the foliage in spring are an extra-added bonus.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a carpet-like patch 4 to 6 inches tall and spreading 18 inches or more, Catlins Giant 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. 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 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, Catlins Giant 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.
