I love this ground cover plant, have two types in my garden, burgundy glow and atropurpurea, does tend to suffer with mildew though

Irregular moisture / dryness promotes mildew however Ajuga is a real swine for it.

I have clay soil in a shady area I'd like to plant this in. Do you know if it would thrive? Conflicting advice online! @Squares

Ooh I'm waiting for the response to @Hollybok question because I think I would like to plant in similar conditions😀

@lyndag it's so confusing isn't it?! Don't want to end up spending lots on it if it's going to die 😃
