Popular as a dependable evergreen ground cover for shade and sun in most areas of the USA. ‘Caitlin’s Giant’ is a larger leafed ajuga with purple and green foliage with a ruffled edge. It is more tolerant of soil types than normal ajuga, and is actually quite drought tolerant once established. It performs equally well in sun or shade, and is a vigorous spreader, choking out weeds. Blue flower spikes appear in April through May. The plant grows 8- 10 inches tall and spreads up to 3 feet. It makes an excellent groundcover in shade or sun, but will not tolerate foot traffic well. Use stepping stones for pathways. Flowers are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
It can grow in the shade of large trees where grass is hard to establish. (NOT Walnut trees) It also fits nicely into rock gardens and mixed container plantings. Provide adequate moisture if grown in full sun in the south.
