Ajuga reptans is easy to grow and. Ajugas prefers a well-drained shady location but also performs well in sunny areas. Will adapt to a wide variety of conditions EXCEPT extremely wet. This plant would thrive in organic matter. A light, early spring fertilization is sufficient. Spreads rapidly. Ajuga is relatively care-free, however, it can spread, particularly in lawns. It is susceptible to crown rot. To limit damage from crown rot, rake debris regularly and keep the bed as clean as possible. Dig out unwanted plants to keep within boundaries.
