Ajuga pyramidalis ‘Metallica Crispa’
Delightfully crinkled, curly leaves with a purple-blue tone and a shiny metallic sheen give way to 6” spikes of cobalt blue flowers in spring. Exceptional for its well-behaved, relatively slower, mat-forming growth. Shines beautifully in mixed containers, and is useful between stepping stones and anywhere erosion or weeds need to be controlled.
Part shade. Drought tolerant once established. Avoid full sun. Deer resistant. Height 4”. Spread 12”+. Zones 3-10.
