Giant Bugle

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Ajuga incisa 'Blue Enigma' - ​6 available. This Giant Bugle displays large, rich, dark blue spring flowers over a long period in spring on spikes atop bold foliage. The color is as deeply saturated as cobalt blue just edging into the purple range. Flowers are a draw to pollinating bees and hummingbirds, too. Attractive green leaves are incised in a sawtooth pattern. This is a completely deciduous and clumping perennial without any of the colonizing tendencies of its better known cousin, Bugleweed. Site 'Blue Enigma' in sun to half shade in fertile, moist soil - perfect for perennial border or for a sunny woodland's edge. Ajuga incisa is probably going to be a doer in USDA zone 5b where sheltered and mulched. If ordered in autumn your Ajuga will arrive cut back prepared for the long winter's nap.
