Ajuga reptans 'Catlin's Giant'

 

Bugle 'Catlin's Giant'

This is a fast growing ground covering plant but could become invasive if not kept under control, it spreads by putting out runners. The glossy leaves are oval in shape with some varieties being a mid green, but others ranging to a dark green with purple markings. The flowers grow on short spikes. 'Catlins Giant' is semi-evergreen, with low spreading large-leaved burgundy-tinged green waxy foliage and slender flower spikes bearing small deep blue flowers.
