Ajuga incisa 'Frosted Jade'


Availability : Available

Description :

A pearl for a well-kempt, shady border

Ajuga incisa 'Frosted Jade' is quite different from its adventurous European cousin, Ajuga reptans.

  • Ajuga incisa is native to Honshu Island (Japan) where its habitat is in damp woodland and shady river banks.
  • Although it is slightly rhizomatous, this bugleweed is not a ground cover and the variegated form is a fairly timid grower.
  • It has deeply incised foliage and sublime almond-green, vanilla-tipped variegation.
  • And we sometimes forget to expect its spring gift of bunches of shiny violet-blue tubular flowers.

In the garden we plant this gem along the edge of a shady border in moist to damp, humus-rich and very well drained soil. A carefully applied mulch will protect its delicate leaves from splashes in heavy rain and, we hope, from greedy slugs and snails!

Height: 20 to 30 cm. Hardy. Semi-evergreen to deciduous.

Synonym: Ajuga incisa 'Bikun'.
