A diminutive, vigorous, evergreen Ajuga exhibiting striking flowers and foliage. Small mint-green leaves permanently retain a prominent, irregular pale creamy-yellow margin. During mid to late spring, dense upright spikes of rich blue flowers provide a brilliant color contrast with the foliage. An ideal low ground-cover in restricted spaces, on rock gardens or in containers with well drained but moisture retentive soils.
