Ajuga 'Purple Torch'

Plant Type: Perennials

Tiny lavender-pink flowers appear in spring in torch-like flower spikes that rise from the rosette centers well above the foliage to 12" tall.  Beautiful foliage in rich greens, burgundy or colorful variegations, makes this plant an excellent groundcover or edger.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:


Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, humusy soils with good drainage, but tolerates moderately dry ones. Will grow in full shade,but best performance is in sunny locations (at least 3-4 hours of sun per day). Provide good air circulation in hot and humid areas where crown rot is a problem. Divide when clumps become overcrowded.
