Description

Also known as Bugleweed, this is one of the most commonly planted ground covers for shady areas. This selection quickly forms a low carpet of medium-sized, ruffled leaves, in an attractive mint green shade with creamy-white edging. Short spikes of pink flowers are an added bonus in mid to late spring. Vigorous habit. Evergreen in most regions. Not the best choice for extremely dry shade conditions, like under maple or evergreen trees. Will perform well in tubs or mixed containers. Easily divided in spring or fall, the plants make runners that root into the ground. These can be moved to start a new patch.
