Ajuga' Texas Tough' 

Ajuga reptans Texas Tough is a low groundcover growing under 6 inches tall with a dense cover of green rounded, slightly scalloped leaves. Narrow spikes to 10 inches tall with whorls of dark blue-purple flowers appear in abundance in spring. This selection tolerates widely varying conditions and can be grown in sun or shade in reasonably well-drained soil. It accepts drier conditions than other Ajuga reptans selections and could even be considered semi-drought tolerant in shaded locations.

It also thrives, solidly covering the ground, even in full southern sun with 100% humidity and almost daily rains. Hardy to below 0 °F and fully evergreen in mild climates.

A tremendous, tough, low-growing plant for use as a small-scale groundcover, as a perennial border edging, or in a container. In only two years, it forms a spectacular, weed-suppressing 4' wide patch. The dark blue flowers attract butterflies. Other common names include bugleherb, bugleweed, carpetweed, and carpet bungleweed.
