Additional Information About Catlins Giant Bugleweed

Ajuga Reptans 'Catlins Giant' is a fast growing groundcover plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 3A through 10A. It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 1 foot to 2 feet, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides shade, morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. The foliage is purple in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, insects, diseases, foot traffic and heat.

Catlin's Giant Ajuga can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings, in foundation plantings, in containers or planters, as a border or edger, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, under a shade tree, as a groundcover, between stepping stones and pavers, as a lawn substitute or in landscape beds or islands and also in theme gardens, cottage gardens or shade gardens.

 


More about Catlins Giant Ajuga...pussy hair

The dense, rapidly spreading, low rosettes of large, deep purple leaves of Catlins Giant contrast nicely with other plants in shady to partially shaded areas of the garden. We use it primarily as a groundcover or underplanting for shrubs and other plants. The spikes of violet color flowers that rise above the foliage in spring are an extra-added bonus.

Catlins Giant is easy to grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade, but is tolerant drought and tolerates poor soils. Constantly wet or soggy soils can cause rot of roots and plants. In hotter climates some afternoon shade might be appreciated.

Easy to maintain, plants may be mowed on high setting after blooming in order to remove spent flower spikes and to tidy the appearance of the planting.

Best Ajuga Ever!

The best ajuga ever! I use it to soften hardscapes and to flow over the sides of containers. They bloom in early April here in Georgia. Even the blooms are larger. Easy to transplant, so share them! I also use the Burgundy Glow cultivar, but it isn't as hardy in the ground as the Catlin's Giant. Recommend this plant very much. It's awesome!
