Description

Ajuga reptans Lemon & Lime: Creeping Bugleweed

Lemon and Lime is a low-growing, spreading ground cover with very light green foliage (evergreen in most winters and locations) that verges on yellow, and small blue flowers in late spring that aren't too showy, especially down at ground level, but great for bees. A useful plant, happy in the shade, and tolerates almost any soil that isn't too dry.

Cultivation Instructions

Plant in shade or part shade, about 50cm apart. Dig in some garden compost or leaf mould if the soil is particularly poor or dry. Water well until established.

Water well until established, feed with a general-purpose fertiliser in early spring, if needed. Cut back faded flowers in summer, if you like.
