Ajuga is a common plant related to the wild bugle, but selected for leaf colour and - in the case of this variety - its larger than average leaves and flower spikes. The foliage is robust, evergreen and bronzy-purple in colour, and makes a good background to the upright spikes of blue flowers, produced throughout late spring to mid summer. Bugle is very versatile, equally at home as ground cover under trees or shrubs as in a sunny flower border, and even in containers. It is especially useful as background foliage in winter containers of ivies, santolina and pansies. 'Catlin's Giant' has been given an Award of Garden Merit (AGM), which is for plants of outstanding excellence.
