This shiny bronze leaved Bugleweed will quickly become one of your favorites. 'Metallica' and other Ajuga are also called Carpet Bugle because of the dense carpet that it forms quickly by its spreading rhizomes. Its aggressive nature makes it a key plant in helping to stabilize an eroding slope, creating a low maintenance groundcover for under a tree or even as a lawn substitute. Deer and rabbits don't care for the big, flashy foliage but butterflies and hummingbirds flock to the deep blue flowers that bloom in spikes above the foliage in the early summer. 'Metallica' is a tough plant whose evergreen foliage can handle most any location, sun or shade, even the occasional vehicle or bike traffic!
