Ajuga are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of chalk, clay, sand or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Overall colour of the stunning foliage is at its best when planted in a position of part shade. Ajuga are well suited to banks and slopes where they can spread or flower beds and borders within a wildflower or wildlife meadow.

Plant Ajuga 30cm (12in) apart, taking care not to plant too deeply. The crown should never be covered with soil or the plant will rot and die.
Ajuga are very low maintenance. Every 2-4 years it may be necessary to thin out any crowded clusters of foliage. This will reduce any chances of root rot.
It is possible to propagate Ajuga by division.
