Ajuga 'Loie's Lavender'



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Named by plant guru John Flintoff who found this as an interesting seedling growing in plantswoman Loie Benedict's garden. John has an almost incomprehensible breadth of knowledge about plants and can well judge when a plant is distinct and worth naming. Two examples of introductions from him are Pulmonaria 'Roy Davidson' and Pulmonaria 'Benediction' which have yet to be supplanted by a couple of decades of new introductions so this Ajuga comes with some plant cred. Light green leaves with a spreading habit and flowers of a soft muted lavender which happily goes with most everything. As long as the soil is reasonably moist, this will be good in sun to light shade and is resistant to deer and rabbits. We have both and we accept your sympathies.
