Plant Features

Metallica Ajuga Plant has very tight, crisp-leafed, crinkled bronzy-purple foliage with a greenish-brown shine. Known to attract butterflies, this wonderfully colored Bugleweed is excellent for shady, moist areas and will also tolerate a little more sun than most ajuga plants. Metallica features 8-inch spikes with dark blue flowers and thrives in rocky areas, under trees, and in poor soils. The Metallica Bugleweed is one of the more aggressive varieties of Ajuga.
